Director of Civic Engagement at University of Chicago, Michelle Olson and Artist, Cydney M Lewis stand by Lewis' mixed media works in the artspace on the corner of 53rd and Harper.
Olson spoke about the goal of the project during Chicago Artists Month. "The U of C is a big supporter of the arts in Hyde Park. Art contributes to community and we want to see it create vitality and keep the spaces alive."
Artist, Melissa Weber's concept "was to transform the spaces into artspaces to bring the community and the artist together."
