The City of Lawrenceville and the Lawrenceville Arts Commission released their first arts improvement projects in the downtown area and newly adopted logo. The projects include final designs for an alleyway renovation on the square and two Depot District signs to be installed on Perry and North Clayton Streets to limit the entry of large commercial vehicles into the downtown area.
The alleyway design features gas lanterns, string lights, an entryway arch, a paved walkway, and provides a walkthrough from the public parking lot to the downtown square. Designs for the Depot District signs include arched steel structures across both roads with a height limiting bar feature. The structures will brand the Depot District and also function as an art installation. Bids are expected to be requested on both projects in the near future. A construction timeline has not been established. To view a map of the Depot District signage placement, click here.
The Arts Commission was formed in October 2020 and has been working since that time on an overall plan to institute art throughout the city. The members of the Lawrenceville Arts Commission include: Aura Leigh Sanders, Chair; Amber Walden, Vice-Chair; Alicia Wetzel; Alice Stone-Collins; Nancy Abuaisheh; Katrina Fellows; and Councilman Bob Clark.
The City Council will vote on an official name for the alleyway at the council meeting on August 23, 2021 at 7 pm.
