To support Letters Beyond Form: Chicago Types (November 2024–April 2025), an exhibition that looks at typography (the shape and design of letters) within Chicago’s diverse neighborhoods to investigate design legacies and their contemporary echoes. The project highlights alternative modernisms by considering how revolutionary movements and concepts like love and safety have shaped the way communities spread and designed information for one another. The grant supports an engagement fellow, who helps build deeper relationships on the South Side and hosts events. The project is part of the Terra Foundation initiative Art Design Chicago.
