About the Book
City As Site documents an innovative temporary public arts project that took place on Chicago's Lawndale communities of the West Side in the summer of 2010 with support from the Chicago Public Art Group, the National Endowment for the Arts, and Enlace Chicago. The project was led by Maria Gaspar, with assistance from Emily Grelck and in collaboration with performance, sculpture and sound artists, such as Sebastian Alvarez, Carla Duarte, and Benjamin Thorp. This publication includes youth journal writings, drawings and images based on the performance based projects youth created throughout the six-week duration.
