The neighborhood project was something that was created with After School Matters and 30 plus Chicago High School Students. Working together to create and install a piece that these young adults felt reflected the type of Chicago they see everyday. This montage has been a year in the making, gathering photos from various neighborhoods, as well, of their friends. The students wanted to work with the idea of a working class city, focusing on downtowns backyard. The reds and blues are in reference to Chicago’s Iconic flag. The more neutral colors are in place to mimic the industrial side of the city.
