Community artists will rejuvenate the #BreathingRoom Space 51st facade with a mural that introduces our presence to the Back of the Yards community. Teaching artists Miguel Lopez, Jus Fanni, and Paris Fresh with the support of Aerin Cooper will facilitate dialogue to dissect the false divisions between Black and Brown communities through celebrating the power of unity between Indigenous American/Latinx and African diasporic people in Chicago. The session will culminate in a completed mural that visually bridges #BreathingRoom as a Black liberation space with its surrounding Latinx & Spanish-speaking communities.
