As part of the East Clayton Street Improvements Project, the historic road will be revitalized with an ambitious new project. Artist and city planner Eric Leshinsky will give a talk on his newest work, a three-dimensional, 14-piece public use installation entitled “Frequency.” “Frequency” features multiple public amenities, such as play areas, benches and trash cans, integrated into an aesthetically pleasing and space-conscious work. Leshinsky, who serves as the chief of comprehensive planning for the city of Annapolis, MD, has worked with cities across the country to create pieces that are functional, compliment the space and oftentimes draw attention to issues. “Frequency” is set to be installed the week of Dec. 5, and it will be dedicated on Dec. 8 at 11 a.m. at College Square Plaza.
