Uncovered Discussion Series : Art the Community : Pullman

  • husART Design Collective 1800 W 21st St Chicago, IL, 60608 United States (map)

In short: focused conversational pot luck!

Our inaugural Uncovered Discussion Series serial “Art Shaped Community” looks at relationships between growing communities within Chicago, Gary, and Detroit. We will investigate what challenges face each of these cities and how particular neighborhoods have responded and thrived. Within this conversation will be central themes of gentrification, dealing with abandoned properties, and questions of what makes healthy communities.

President Obama is designating the Pullman neighborhood a National Park. As a once thriving industrial neighborhood, we will look at the transitions of the community with a focus on how current residents have brought new life to the area.

Bring a dish and choice beverage to share and come ready with questions or thoughts on what makes a community.

The evening will be hosted by JB Daniel, Founder Mosnart and Rebecca Buchmeier, Architect and Pullman Resident
