This extraordinary interactive event for audiences of all ages will be presented in partnership with the Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum, “Chicago’s gateway to urban nature”. The youth created collection of curiosities magnifies everyday wonders of the Chicago urban ecosystem as experienced by young people living in our city. The living exhibit was built by over 750 youth from diverse Chicago neighborhoods in creative education partnerships with Redmoon’s Neighborhood Arts Programs. The youth use shadow animation, sound installation, surreal visual art, and performance to transform the museum’s South Gallery and Terrace.

Collaborators: Audubon Elementary School, Cook County Juvenile Detention Center, Family Focus Lawndale, Franklin Fine Arts Center, Penn Elementary School, Manley High School, Melody Elementary School, and St. Patrick High School.
