Restoring the Ickes
Piece description from the artist
Restoring the Ickes is about the Ickes Projects in Chicago, which along with many low income housing in Chicago was wiped away quickly to bring new development and rid crime in the area. My question is how are the children of these communities affected? Growing up in a world that is filled with struggle and displaced to the suburbs or able to remain thanks to section 8 in a new surrounding that is a world they know nothing about. Beautiful grass, new walls, clean surroundings.
