Opening Wednesday, November 8th, from 6PM - 8PM
The DuSable Museum of African American History and the Poetry Foundation welcome adults of all experience levels, as well as teens and their families, to a two-part celebration of the architecture and poetry of the South Side of Chicago.
In Part I, we will explore South Side through the architecture featured in Lee Bey’s Chicago: A Southern Exposure, now on display at the DuSable Museum. Together, we will discuss the often overlooked beauty of Chicago’s South Side architecture and share personal memories, before composing a collaborative piece depicting the city through visual art and poetry. Participants with connections to the South Side and its beauty are welcome and encouraged to bring their items to share and add to the piece. All other materials will be provided.
All experience levels are welcome. Admission is free; RSVP required. Attendees are strongly encouraged to attend both sessions. RSVP is required:
**Please note, part II will take place on November 15th at the Poetry Foundation (61 West Superior Street) and you can register for that session here
