20 Neighborhoods Exhibition Planning Meeting

Teaching Artists and Participating Artists from Benton House, Imagine Englewood If…, Mercy Housing, Enlace Chicago, Living Arts Center, and Hamdard Center.

Last Wednesday night teaching artists, participating artists, volunteers, and interns gathered at WMG to discuss plans for the upcoming 20 Neighborhoods Exhibition. How will we label the assemblages to show city unity but maintain our individuality? What kinds of fabric should we use in our fiber installation? And many more questions.

Yollocalli Teaching Artist Victoria Martinez presented her plans for the collaborative installation she will be leading in the WMG atrium with all involved in 20 Neighborhoods. She explained that we will be working together to braid fabric into ropes to hang in the space.
We arranged fabric swatches into patterns and designs as well as filled out surveys for Victoria to reflect on when she designs the installation.
At the close of the meeting we discussed an important question: to put individual name labels next to all the pieces or not? You’ll have to come to the exhibition to see the outcome!
