From Hanson: Many of us are quite familiar with the red circle and You Are Here dot affixed to many directories throughout America. These dots are wonderful assurances that we are, in fact, somewhere. The You Are Here Toledo Project (YAH) is a series of large one-of-a-kind outdoor dots that will be affixed to various public locations throughout Toledo, Ohio to promote positivity and enhance our sense of place. Using the circular shape of a dot (at three feet in diameter); Northwest Ohio artists, designers, students and the general public were asked to make a powerful visual statement on the dots throughout the city in response to the dots location, which will go on display in May 2012. One hundred (100) dots will mark the city, each containing a QR (quick response) code that will allow smartphone users to learn more about the artwork, its location and its artist. This project is unique to Toledo and will showcase the amazing artistic talent and places of this region.
