Buena Park Arts Expo


A celebration of the arts and community.  We converted a defunct cleaners into a temporary home for 8-weeks of programs including theatre and performance, visual arts, poetry and spoken word.  Over 20 programs were presented with participation from over 90 artists from Uptown and around the city of Chicago. In my role as guest curator, I led this creative placemaking initiative that turned a defunct drycleaners into a temporary arts space that re-activated an abandoned building and subsequently attracted a small business tenant.
