foot traffic on canvas
37 in x 93 in
This canvas was installed for five months on the entrance ramp to the dining room of a soup kitchen in the Wicker Park neighborhood of Chicago. During that time, roughly 18,000 meals were served, 800 showers were provided and 600 bags of laundry were washed, dried and folded free of charge. Once a week, mental health outreach, drop-in case management, medical attention and substance abuse counseling were offered.
