Art, Drones and a more walkable/bikeable Nashville? Yes, please! That is just what came together last week at Amqui Elementary School in the Madison suburb of Nashville. One of WalkBike Nashville mission is to create safer routes to school, so the organization WalkBike Nashville contracted with artist Andee Rudloff to make a splash. So Aerial Innovations showed up and captured it all from the air with their drones.
Andee created a mural-led bike lane with the kids, parents, faculty, and volunteers who helped finish the painting. As a result of the project, the students at Amqui Elementary now have a safer, and much more fun way to get to school on their bikes. WalkBike Nashville has been making the streets of Nashville more pedestrian/bike friendly since 1998. With the exponential growth in Nashville, our city and surrounding areas need more safe places to walk, bike and scoot.
Stephen Schween, our drone pilot, does his own walking & biking around East Nashville. Typically, he partakes on his way to work or with his kids, so this was a great way to help out in his own neighborhood. Judging from the photos, it looks like everyone had a great time participating in the project. It was a huge success and benefited the children who walk and bike to Amqui Elementary tremendously.
