Surprise Finish Line
Volunteer artists and activists engaged trail users in an impromptu finish line celebration for average, everyday Canal Trail users. Participants emerged from their hidden positions to surprise runners, bikers, and walkers. Unsuspecting Canal trail users were shifted out of their everyday mindset to begin wondering what it would be like to experience more public art and community celebration in their public spaces. Everyone passing through also got a big dose of good ol’ fashioned encouragement.
