25 neighbors want Chime – an interactive public art installation that uses music and movement to create community on Market Street.

Chime (by Civic Harmony) is a fun and engaging public art installation that uses music and movement to promote physical activity in public space. Built with a blend of metal and wood, there is no electronic component of Chime. The installation is built to respond to touch… A simple push on one large wooden panel set into motion a series of sounds, an exploration of connectivity and smiles.

Our project is evolving as we get feedback from the community. Follow our progress and check out our pages.
