Design @ Dohm Alley Update

By early summer, a team of educators and artists will transform the vacant alley between Starbucks and Landau. Throughout the summer and fall, the alley will be curated with temporary, rotating art installations.

Design @ Dohm Alley will showcase art, sculpture and ideas in an open air gallery setting that is eighty feet long and eleven-feet wide. Part garden, part classroom, this dynamic sensorium will invite pedestrians into a lively and interactive experience unlike any sidewalk engagement previously witnessed.

The first installation is the “English Romantic Poets.” Using their poetry, the Dohm Alley team has designed an installation of sculpture, landscape elements, audio and video to take pedestrians on a stimulating journey summoning the past to join us in the present though the medium of art and performance. Sculptures from the Philadelphia-based artists’ collective “Traction” will be featured in the exhibition.

Design @ Dohm Alley, a project of Princeton Future, is another project by the team that created Writers Block and Quark Park, two award-winning community engagement spaces that brought art, science and literature together in a spectacle of wonderment.

Town of Princeton conducting parking survey

The town of Princeton is conducting a parking survey in an attempt to solve parking and circulation issues in the municipality.  The Princeton Council hired a Boston-based consultant to analyze parking demands and operations, and provide recommendations.

Officials will look at issues related to parking management, time limits, permits, technology, pricing, enforcement, parking in residential neighborhoods adjacent to the downtown business district, parking for commuter train users, bicycling, and walking. They will also consider future parking needs and strategies to strengthen businesses downtown Princeton.
