The Tutty’s Crossing Team addressed the development of public art and design features at Tutty’s Crossing in Freeport, Illinois. The overall goal of this planning effort is to improve the site’s potential as a local and regional destination point through design features and public art.  The specific steps the Tutty’s Crossing Art and Design Team has taken to meet this goal are:

  • Research on design principles for bridge lighting, trailhead signage, and other public art and design features.
  • Stakeholder engagement to get input on design and visit the work site to get a sense of topography and other landscape features.
  • Develop preliminary design and get stakeholder feedback.
  • Based on stakeholder feedback, finalize designs.
