Comfort Station
Chicago, IL

Edra Soto, a Puerto Rican artist based in Chicago, crafts an outdoor installation next to the cultural hub Comfort Station in the Logan Square neighborhood in northwest Chicago. During the summer and fall this outdoor setting  functions as a communal space and site for additional art installations, performances, and participatory workshops and programs curated by Soto and partner organizations. The programming and installations pay homage to and celebrate Latinx/e heritage, acknowledging the rich cultural identities present in Chicago communities and addressing the project’s core themes of displacement, collective grief, and neighborly care.
