Sun Stomp

Premiering at the 2018 Light City Baltimore festival, Sun Stomp was a solar powered light and interactive audio-visual environment that for eight nights activated McKeldin Square. The monumental scaffolding sculpture featured an interactive projection on one side and an array of sixteen 290 watt solar panels on the other. Electrical energy collected during the day and was stored as chemical energy in a battery bank which provided electricity to a colorful array of LED neon lights illuminating the structure after dark. Participants were invited to stomp on the bleacher footboards to trigger sun-inspired visuals and amplified sounds of the Sun sourced from NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory. Passersby were also invited to peer into the custom built “Power Shed” to learn about the solar technology and AV controls energizing the project. Foot-stomping powers combined, participants visually and experientially conjured the awesome and beautiful power of the sun.

Solar and Storage Statistics

  • Sun Stomp featured 527 feet of LED lighting.
  • All 16 solar panels provided 4,640 Watts per sun hour or 23,200 Watts per day in April.
  • The average home in Baltimore uses 7,546 kilowatts per year; the same amount of electricity produced by these 16 solar panels and stored by the battery bank.
  • The 16 solar panels installed on a home would save $1,052 annually in electricity charges.During Light City the Sun Stomp solar panels will prevented 200 pounds of CO2 emissions from local electricity generation.

Choose Your Own Adventure

Choose your own Adventure transformed Baltimore’s Charles Street Bridge into a colorful playscape of pedestrian pathways and hanging beach balls. The project was commissioned by Baltimore Office of Promotion and the Arts for the free 2018 Artscape festival. Spray chalk lines marked a site-based map converging under a forest of beach balls hanging from an open air structure. The streetscape-enhancing project was a collaboration between Baltimore-based public artists Becky Borlan and Graham Coreil-Allen.

Choose your own Adventure took inspiration from the natural paths taken by street-crossing pedestrians, the Jones Falls and train tracks below, and the joyful experiences of summer-inspired toys. Hundreds of thousands of festival goers interacted with the kinetic environment of over four hundred colorful, translucent beach balls and a line striping street mural covering over three thousand square feet. Numerous beach balls featured hand-painted instructions offering choices for adventures beyond. Adventures included “Write a Poem in the Dirt”, “Change your name for the summer,” and “Take the first train to the end of the line.” Through tactical urbanism and creative design, the installation previewed possibilities for completely transforming the Charles Street Bridge into a playful, poetic, and pedestrian environment.

Through the Crafting the Corridor community tour and interactive mapping workshop, El Paso residents, business owners, planners, and elected officials shared personal perspectives and identified local assets, challenges, and ideas for strengthening their neighborhoods along the city’s new streetcar routes. Locals participated in an interactive hop-on/hop-off bus tour that took them along the North and South streetcar loops. At each stop speakers shared points of interest and perspectives on current issues, local history, and opportunities for preservation and growth. Participants returned to the El Paso Museum of Art for a facilitated discussion and creative mapping session led by public artist Graham Coreil-Allen and El Paso 1st District council representative and artist Peter Svarzbein. Residents used laser cut cardboard signs, colorful tape, and play doh to write, illustrate, and sculpt their neighborhood assets, challenges, and new ideas for building on the city’s streetcar revival. They placed their handmade signs and sculptures on corresponding locations within an immersive, colorful 10’ x 20’ vinyl floor map. El Paso city planners documented participants’ numerous contributions as input for the El Paso Streetcar Corridor Plan.

Visioning Home was a day-long workshop at the Baltimore Museum of Art that invited participants to challenge the entrenched narratives about Baltimore neighborhoods and envision possible futures. As part of the Imagining Home exhibit series, forty residents from across the city gathered for this meaningful day to learn about civically engaged art, find inspiration in the museum’s collection, and take part in a series of facilitated conversations and artmaking activities designed to spark creative thinking about changes and opportunities in Baltimore. El Paso artist and city councilperson Peter Svarzbein presented on how his fictitious advertising campaign to revive a defunct trolley raised $97 million in funding to re-establish strong cultural and economic bonds between El Paso, Texas and Juarez, Mexico communities. Group discussions were captured throughout the day by visualizations drawn onto the studio's walls by graphic recorder Lucinda Levine. The day of engagement culminated in an interactive mapping installation and activity created and led by public artist Graham Coreil-Allen. Participants used laser cut cardboard signs to write and illustrate their neighborhood assets, challenges, and new ideas. They placed these signs on corresponding locations within an immersive, 22’ x 24’ floor map made of brightly colored tape. Residents highlighted and sensitively discussed a range of issues such as the school-to-prison pipeline, food deserts, and industrial pollution; and proposed new ideas such as job-creating urban farms, universal tuition, and completing Baltimore’s mass transit rail network.

How do you make a path to power where none exists? How do you assess a community's needs and create access for a community to self-determine?

Presented by the Baltimore Museum of Art at Union Baptist Church, FutureSite Baltimore invited participants to challenge the entrenched narratives about our city and envision possible futures by sharing their neighborhood assets, concerns, and ideas. This interactive mapping activity was presented as part of the The Necessity of Tomorrow(s) lecture series featuring luminary artist Mark Bradford in conversation with BMA Director Christopher Bedford. Bradford’s talk explored how the artist grapples with “making a path,” and other key questions in his artistic practice and community-based work. Afterwards, attendees were invited to contribute to the FutureSite Baltimore map by writing on laser cut signs and creating play doh sculptures representing their inspired visions for the future of Baltimore City. Contributions to the map were collected by the museum to inform forthcoming programming.

Recent New Public Sites Walking Tours

New Public Sites walking tours explore the history, design and uses of overlooked public spaces. From championing pedestrian accessibility around Druid Hill Park, to exploring the robust and emerging civic spaces and public art of Arlington County, New Public Sites tours show that place is truly what we made of it. Through New Public Sites walking tours we poetically re-experienced everyday public spaces while learning from community leaders and civil servants how to affect change at the block level. Recent tours include the Arlington County Wandering series, Rosslyn Public Art, Mondawmin Crossings, Druid Hill Reservoir Interchange, Bromo District, and Five Points Denver.

New Public Sites consist of everyday public spaces existing in one or more of three states: rendered mute by their physical and discursive emptiness, ambiguous due to contextual contradictions of urban design, and/or invisible from a lack of formal architectural framing and practical readability. Through tours, maps and videos, Public Artist Graham Coreil-Allen cultivates pedestrian agency, interprets aspects of the everyday and investigates the negotiable nature of the built environment. New Public Sites invites you to practice “radical pedestrianism” – traveling by foot through infinite sites of freedom while testing the limits of and redefining public space.

Big Jump Baltimore Wayfinding

The Big Jump is a temporary path accessible by foot, bike, and mobility devices along Druid Park Lake Drive and 28th Street in Baltimore, Maryland. This demonstration project counteracts decades of highway expansion that effectively cut off the surrounding working class African American neighborhoods from the park. As a local resident and public artist, Graham Coreil-Allen collaborated with Bikemore, Baltimore City Department of Transportation, and neighbors on creating signage and stencils along the Big Jump pathway that make it safer for all people to enjoy the cultural and public health benefits of Druid Hill Park.

The Big Jump logo was designed by Danielle Parnes on behalf of Bikemore, with icon input from Coreil-Allen. Coreil-Allen then adapted the logo to serve as pathway signage and wayfinding. The signage features icons representing different active uses, including walking, wheelchair riding, bicycling dog walking, and skateboarding. The vinyl cut signs show motorists and passersby the uses of the Big Jump pathway. To provide wayfinding for people not in cars we also made and sprayed large scale street stencils highlighting pathway primary uses - walking, wheelchair riding, and bicycling. In addition, we stenciled colorful footprint trails that visually lead residents from surrounding blocks to safe access points for the Big Jump Baltimore pathway and Druid Hill Park.

SiteLines Walking Tours, Video Series, & Gallery Installation

SiteLines was a multimedia collection of online videos, experimental walking tours and an immersive art installation presented by ICA Baltimore at Current Space, featuring banners, photography, typography and cartography derived from nearby invisible public spaces.

Sitelines is a translation of New Public Sites walking tours into video web series capturing the artist and walking tour participants as they playfully explore public space while he shares the sites’ histories, design, and uses. The ongoing New Public Sites project interprets the overlooked and invisible sites within cities, investigates the negotiable nature of public space, and pushes the boundaries of pedestrian agency. Filming for the first season of SiteLines began in September 2014 with four tours: Crossing the Highway to Nowhere, Reservoir Chill, Old Town Walking Revival and Power Plant Alive! These collections of new public sites are connected by suburban style development in an urban context, including freeways and pedestrian malls. Videos from these walks will be incorporated into a larger installation of banners, photography, typography, found object sculptures and a gallery-size map at Baltimore’s Current Space, opening on April 24. During the course of the three week exhibition, Coreil-Allen will also lead three walking tours in collaboration with additional artists working in the surrounding Bromo Tower Arts & Entertainment District. All tours are free and open to the public.
