Floating Museum
Chicago, Illinois

To support Floating Monuments: Mecca Flats, a large-scale inflatable public work of art that references a historic building called Mecca Flats (no longer extant) on Chicago’s South Side that was significant to the city’s cultural and social history. The movable structure, installed in several Chicago parks sites in 2024, is accompanied by programs that celebrates the arts and artists associated with the Mecca Flats and Chicago’s Black Renaissance while at the same time addressing the legacy of displacement and disinvestment in several of the city’s neighborhoods. The project takes place as part of the Terra Foundation initiative Art Design Chicago.
