Inaugural front yard project by
At The Franklin’s front yard’s chain link fence, artist Jaclyn Jacunski will install cotton fabric naturally dyed with materials acquired from empty lots of East Garfield Park.
The urban landscape physically expresses and reflects the social, political, and financial networks that bind the community while also creating divides between us.
The work reflects on Lee Bogg’s theory of productive engagement on such spaces- to consider what is there, and what has been left behind in the community. The materials from the lot are used to create a new object that works to engage the public and is meant to be critical of the operations of power and property.
