Cannas & Corn: A Community Garden
Olivia Gude
Mixed media mosaic
2004, Arts in Transit

This mosaic commemorates the ephemeral public art form of the community garden. North Lawndale has an active tradition of dedicated people who transform abandoned urban spaces into neighborhood amenities. They describe their work as “blight into sight.” The mosaic was fabricated in a community mosaic workshop to “plant the seeds” of mosaic making skills in the community so that locally made public art can become part of the garden making process.
