React, Respect, Intersect was designed to promote traffic safety at the location of a dangerous intersection in Kensington, Brooklyn. Teen artists worked with Yana Dimitrova and Adam Kidder to conduct studies on local traffic patterns and strategize ways to promote safety and respect amongst the many communities present in the neighborhood. This project was created in partnership with the New York City Department of Transportations Office of Safety Education and its Urban Art Program division. The team investigated what makes the intersection dangerous, tracked the speeds of passing cars, conducted a neighborhood survey, and studied local signage designed to control traffic. The mural highlights a large central figure of a young girl holding her hand up as if to say, Stop! With its bright colors and vibrant imagery, the mural is a visual speed bump that grabs the attention of passing drivers and reminds them what is at stake when they break traffic laws and endanger others.
