DESCRIPTION

The Ten Thousand Ripples project is a partnership between Chicago-based artist Indira Johnson, Changing Worlds, LUMA, and other cultural and educational organizations across the city and near suburbs. The project highlights the power of the arts to transform place, space, and its use and meaning within ten communities in the Chicago area. Ten Thousand Ripples will launch in September 2012 with 100 cement and resin Buddha sculptures created by Johnson installed at sites chosen by the ten participating communities. Companion artistic programming will reach an estimated 1,000 youth and tens of thousands of residents across all sites. LUMA will present this culminating exhibition featuring some of the Buddha head sculptures and various artistic responses from all ten TTR communities.
