264,430 Chicagoans were impacted by eviction or foreclosure between 2008–2012. That is almost twice the entire population of Evanston!
In collaboration with Leslie Thomas of Art Works Projects, photojournalist Jon Lowenstein, and documentary filmmaker Maren Wickwire, Anna Mort and Alan Davis of Thirst led a talented team of Moving Designers to create a powerful pop-up exhibition curated by Roberta Feldman currently on display at the 625 Studio Gallery.
The National Public Housing Museum believes the housing crisis is not over and the horrific statistics and true stories need greater amplification, sustained regulations, and responsible legislation. Design stepped up and did all it could to advance this social agenda and at the same time bring real human presence into the presentation of words, data, and portraiture.
Very generous Moving Designers:
