New Public Sites Bromo Spectacular

Explore the Bromo District’s invisible public spaces and storied buildings while learning about the speculative and spectacular efforts shaping the neighborhood to this day. This free, 90 minute New Public Sites walking tour will feature little known histories, urban design successes and challenges, and current artist-led redevelopment projects. Along the way, participants will be invited to see the district in new ways through absurd, poetic, and sublime moments. Playful activities will include unseen vistas, concrete poetry, and sharing of found objects.

Bromo Spectacular is presented as part of Front, curated by Betty Gonzales. Front is an augmented reality and online exhibition addressing issues of urban renewal by reimagining vacant storefronts throughout the Bromo Arts and Entertainment District.
