Participants can also participate up and down Chicago Avenue with screen printing at the PHAT Mobile, built by MCAD Professor Natasha Pestich, or write poetry on Molly Van Avery’s rolling poetry studio, the Poetry Mobile. Theater artists and storytellers Dylan Fresco and Michelle Barnes will also lead performance tours from their story collecting project What Grows Here.

In addition to these interactive activities, visual art and photography from acclaimed artists Wing Young Huie, Stephanie Rogers, HOTTEA, Forrest Wozniack, TAWU (The Art Within Us) artists collective, Michael Hoyt, and Upstream Arts will be on display at various locations between 32nd to 42nd on Chicago Avenue.
