Cannas & Corn: A Garden Community by Olivia Gude and community members at the Chicago Transit Authority Central Park Pink Line Station
<< Two Women on the Street
I've added the text/images of an article originally published in Feminist Studies Journal. It discusses the gendered experiences of women working in public space and the implications of seeing large-scale images of women in public spaces in various contexts.
<< Structure Is Space mosaic installation
a mosaic installation and related community arts projects and exhibition
Also in this chapter, there is a presentation in a pdf format that can be used on full screen mode as an image presentation that describes the process of organizing, researching, making, and installing the intricate glass-tile mosaics.
<< NAEA 2010 presentation on community-based art
I so enjoyed sharing my community-based public art work with folks at the National Art Education Association conference in Baltimore.
I've been adding many images and texts about this work to this portfolio so take a browse through the many chapters.
<< Where We Come From....Where We're Going
a mural in which passersby talk about their thoughts as they move through urban space, painted at a commuter train station
<<Open Books, Open Minds, Open Lands
a mural painted with high school students to enliven a windowless eating area. Still a fresh looking mural--painted back in the days when information mostly circulated through books!
