Moderator: Ben Fried, Editor-in-Chief, Streetsblog
Panelists: Noah Budnick, Deputy Director, Transportation Alternatives; Emily Colasacco, Urban Art program manager, NYC Department of Transportation; Jeff Maki, artist, Center for Urban Pedagogy; and Sara Reisman, Director, NYC Percent for Art and independent curator

In conjunction with the exhibition "Brooklyn Utopias: In TRANSITion," exploring artists' visions for public transit, this panel will bring together transportation and urban design experts with artists and curators to discuss how transportation decisions are made, with a specific focus on the role of artists in design and advocacy. Topics will include recent citywide initiatives to involve artists in streetscape planning; artists’ attempts to mediate and raise awareness of common transit problems; and implications for the future.
 
Immediately following the panel, curator Katherine Gressel will lead participants to see the new sculpture on 4th Avenue by Emily Weiskopf in collaboration with the NYC DOT. Weiskopf will also be present at the panel to answer any questions.
