To support research and development activities for an exhibition with the working title Land, water, garden – urbs in horto – Greening the Swamp, which explores the art and design of Chicago’s green infrastructure as it has unfolded from its Indigenous roots to contemporary green designs and environmental initiatives. The grant supports a series of research convenings and public programs with scholars, environmental activists, practitioners of design, and members of the public, all of which yield input on exhibition plans. The project is expected to lead to an exhibition as part of the Terra Foundation initiative Art Design Chicago.
