500 plates: Neighborhood tables

500 plates is a project by hunter franks that brought 21 akron neighborhoods together to share a single dinner table on the abandoned innerbelt freeway in akron. each neighborhood received a commemorative table installed within their neighborhood park or community center.

 

thankful to be part of a project that reached so many in akron

the challenge was to make them simple enough to adapt to each unique location. The hard work was shifted into the permanence of the installation...

made possible by a grant from the Knight Foundation
