How would you spend $95 million dollars in your community?

Last month, For The People Artists Collective asked Chicago artists to envision how they would spend $95 million dollars (the amount to be spent by the mayor (Rahm) on a new police & fire academy in West Garfield Park) in their own communities, and the responses were powerful and visionary!

Please join us in viewing the posters that were submitted to our campaign, along with other works related to the campaign! We’ll also be doing a quick, pop-up teach-in on the #NoCopAcademy campaign, full of updates and ways to plug in right now.

At Art In These Times: 2040 N Milwaukee Ave, Chicago, Illinois 60647

6:30pm Reception (light drinks & snacks)
7:00pm Program / Teach-In (featuring MB Stephen, Erin Glasco, Kelly Hayes, Molly Costello, and more TBA)
