Using Art to Inform About Street Safety and More

Watch a video about this winning project from a 2020 AARP Community Challenge grantee

LOCATION: Myrtle Beach, South Carolina
City of Myrtle Beach

The beachfront community of Myrtle Beach has an aging population and the city is committed to making the area move livable for everyone. Project funds were used to select artwork from local artists and wrap utility boxes with vinyl signage featuring information about pedestrian safety, wayfinding maps and tips for effective social distancing and safety during the pandemic. 

The AARP Community Challenge funds "quick-action" projects that build momentum for local change to improve livability for people of all ages.
