LEGACIES OF THE STREET

With support from California Humanities for the Arts, Pueblo partnered with community members in the West Adams neighborhood and the UC Davis Feminist Research Institute in an experiment in storytelling about planning decisions’ influence on the built environment and impacts on community. A local resident shared their family’s history in the neighborhood, a vocalist helped the audience summarize that history as it related to the built environment, and Pueblo contextualized it with a wheat paste mural of the community’s history under a freeway overpass (an act of reclaiming public space).
