Artist and developer Theaster Gates in one of the properties he renovated on the South Side of Chicago. Originally trained as a ceramist, Gates has launched several sweeping community initiatives, drawing both praise and criticism. The south side of Chicago is a paradox — neglected, yet the focus of intense nationwide attention. Responding to the crises that plague the South Side — high unemployment, urban blight, segregation — is a network of organizations masterminded by artist and University of Chicago professor Theaster Gates. Intended to build stronger communities through cultural programming, the separate entities are sometimes known as the Constellation. The Rebuild Foundation lies close to the center of the network.
The gazebo has become a national symbol in the outcry over police shootings of black men and boys. The shooting victim, Tamir Rice, had been playing with a pellet gun. He was shot in November within two seconds of a police cruiser skidding to a stop near him. The director of programs for the Rebuild Foundation, Amy Schachman, said she would remain in Cleveland until the dismantling of the gazebo is completed next week. Plans call for the gazebo to be reassembled outside an arts gallery and community space called Stony Island Arts Bank. The wooden planks and trusses from which the roof was built will be numbered and dismantled. She said she and children from the neighborhood planted next to the gazebo a butterfly garden intended to help the children heal.
March 18, Run for the hills. I know, there is a world, which I have traveled, that have a life so much more difficult than I. But from what you said, this girl doesn't sound like she is going to be content to have a marriage for time only. My dream in life as cliche as it sounds is to be happy, and to raise a family - be one of those home mums who goes to school meetings, and award nights, and bakes cakes for their kids school fares.
