Summer of Art is a four-week college preparation program for art & design. The program is designed to develop your artistic and creative skills. Monday June 17, 2013 On Monday we met with Judith Robinson and Arnold Pirtle. Judith works on neighborhood economic development and revitalization. During the meeting we discussed many ideas for projects such as: Net Zero House behind Focus: HOPE (first step is clean-up with the goal to finish by the end of the summer), Business Club.

On Monday we met with Judith Robinson and Arnold Pirtle. Judith works on neighborhood economic development and revitalization. During the meeting we discussed many ideas for projects such as: Net Zero House behind Focus: HOPE (first step is clean-up with the goal to finish by the end of the summer), Business Club on Davidson, which could include corridor improvements, the empty lot at Davidson and Lodge, a possible entrance/ sign for place making effort, a board up on West Davidson which is a main thoroughfare, solar panels/ alternative energy for street lights and general neighborhood safety, and space for entrepreneurs.

During our meeting with Arney Pirtle, who is the Facilities Manager, we discussed an entrance/ gateway at Linwood and Oakman. He mentioned that it could include an electronic sign incorporating a “wow” factor. Other project opportunities that were discussed were the empty lot on Linwood across from the Center for Children, “creative” security measures such as motion cameras and beams, and a solution to the bird problem in the warehouses for food.

Judith had a very enthusiastic energy and was very willing to come up with many ideas for Jenna and me to pursue. Arney seemed very practical. We realized he should be one of our main contacts at Focus: HOPE because he oversees all the projects that happen. We won’t be able to proceed with our projects without his support as well as the architect, Carl Weber who we met later on in the week.

A Summer Focused On Design Plan

On Tuesday we met with Ifeoma Okechukwu, the Educational Manager at CAT. Ifeoma supervises the education of all the students at CAT. She also oversees the security of associate degrees as well as college transfers for last two years of education for the students. She would be our main resource if we want to get involved directly with the students.

On Wednesday we met with Nate at Chiwara and learned about his venture with permaculture. He took us on a tour of his garden at the house and taught us a few things about the permaculture system. I learned that permaculture aims to work with nature and is modeled after natural patterns, which is why the garden has curves as opposed to being in rows. Nate explained that there are no weeds in the garden and that everything was edible, which was amazing to me. They were using that particular garden as a scientific one and were closely monitoring it and measure the produce for data and results.

Nate will be teaching a course in the fall and also knows Dr. Meadows. Jenna and I agreed that perhaps permaculture would be bettered suited for Engineering 100 because of its connection to food security.

On Thursday we met with Carl Weber, the architect. He will also be another important contact in the fall because all devices will have to be approved by him. During this meeting we talked more about the Net Zero house. He believe it would be cool to have a display for savings comparison (electric) in which residents and neighbors could tell how much money they were saving by using specific methods. He also mention interpretive graphic that would promote interactions. We also discussed recycling of cardboard (Carl Is Focus: HOPE’s recycling guru) and possible solutions to catching materials being thrown out at the food distribution center, a fountain at the Cools City Park and a solar or wind pump to power it, lighting in the Pocket Park, a fountain motor in the pocket park and possibly an alternative energy source, and a campus lighting plan.

Side note: Carl had one of the most organized offices in stark contrast to Arney’s, which was interesting because they seem to collaborate often.

We also went canvassing for the YICA program with Sierra, Valerie, and Stephanie, which was a bit out of my comfort zone. We went door to door to hand out flyers promoting the program, and even talked to some community members and kids. Hopefully Sierra will get all the students she needs!
