Activating a highly public site at the corner of N Charles St and E Lafayette Ave, the Station North Mini Golf project engaged artists, designers, and students from Baltimore’s preeminent creative community. Four interdisciplinary design-build teams were assembled for this curriculum-based program consisting of local artists Dave Eassa, Samantha Redles, Megan Lewis and Jose Rosero; a coach from FutureMakers, the mobile makerspace for children; and a teacher and their class of students from three area schools (Baltimore Lab School middle and high school classes, Baltimore Design School upperclassmen, and Margaret Brent Elementary Middle School 6th graders). Each played a vital role in facilitating the collaborative design resulting in eight miniature golf holes. The designs were translated by a team at Gensler to then be fabricated at Open Works, the new makerspace in Station North. Station North Mini Golf will launch at Artscape 2017.

 

 

Station North Mini Golf was conceived and coordinated by Station North Arts & Entertainment. Four groups of students from three schools in Station North – Margaret Brent Elementary Middle School, Baltimore Lab School and the Baltimore Design School – worked with four artists in two hour-long workshops each week during January, February and March 2017. The students researched other miniature golf courses, worked through the Engineering Design Process of “ask, imagine, plan, create, improve,” and created prototypes for multiple design options based on themes they selected for their holes.

The four artists, selected from more than 100 working artists who applied for the project, are Dave Eassa (painter), Megan Lewis (illustrator), Samantha Redles (curator), and Jose Rosero-Curet (light artist).
