This is a plaza for people!

 

PROJECT DESCRIPTION

We envision a future when people say, “Meet me at Milk Plaza.” The new plaza will be the important gathering node the Castro deserves. , Iin times of joy and , in times of sadness, we will meet here at Harvey Milk Plaza.  The plaza will also provide a proper place for those who pilgrimage to the Castro, to memorialize Harvey, cry with Harvey, be weird with Harvey, but most importantly, celebrate equality with Harvey. 

Our proposal aspires to craft a fitting memorial for Harvey and a public plaza that honors his legacy of protest, revolt and community activism.  This is hallowed ground, and we believe in creating a memorial that honors Harvey and reflects the faces of those he fought for and fought with, US.  The Memorial is a reflective and mirror-like faceted panel, adorned with his effervescent visage and his most moving and important quotes.  It is intended to reflect the dynamism, individuality and uniqueness of all those who visit the Memorial and Plaza; all creeds, all races, all walks of life.
