E(art)H Chicago: Selects 11 climate & environmental justice public art projects
Nearly $550,000 in Grants Awarded to Raise Awareness, Create Dialogue & Inspire Action
Emily Moorhead-Wallace and J Taylor Wallace are awarded $44,750 to create the Pollinator Solar Column project which consists of three seven-foot steel and reclaimed wood structures at Sherman Park in Back of the Yards. This community-sourced public artwork will function as a habitat and resource for insects and animals. The community will help create nesting material and residents will design the carvings to be made into the steel at Sherman Library workshops. Residents will be encouraged to build pollinator habitats at home.
