Program Manager, Urban Design and Placemaking, Midtown Alliance
Lauren Bohn is the Program Manager of Placemaking and Public Art at Midtown Alliance. Her recent work has focused on defining the organization’s creative placemaking program, contributing to plans for a robust open space network and establishing Midtown’s signature holiday lighting display, Midtown Bright. Her ability to develop collaborative relationships with property owners and district stakeholders has led to the transformation of numerous underutilized plazas into engaging publicly-accessible spaces. In 2020, Lauren and her team launched Midtown Heart of the Arts, an arts umbrella program that spearheaded the creation of arts residencies in Midtown in addition to ongoing public art commissions and community-centered arts programming.
