The winter might bring hibernation, but the imagination continues to flutter!

It’s the beginning of a new year, and what better way to kick-off the year than to meet the faces of the Archeworks team! Join us on Wednesday, February 3rd at 6:00pm in Little Village for some free food and fellowship.  We will be gathering at the New Life Church and will discuss the exciting plans and ideas that are in the works for the rest of the year.  Learn how you can get involved and give us your input.  All age groups are welcomed.

Let’s work together to bring more green space to Little Village!

From December 24, 2009

Collection of images and thoughts while distributing posters in Little Village. The focus was primarily on businesses surrounding a vacant lot on 26th & St. Louis (abuts the alley where our 26th & trumbull site is). People responded positively to the posters wishing Little Village a Happy New Year with an image of the tree placed in a vacant lot (refer to Decemeber 23rd post). I’m hoping people see the poster we put up inside the Church tomorrow and on Sunday (Christmas Day). These efforts were made in order to draw curiosity into the space and also interact with local residents and businesses. There were a lot of people out despite the rainy and cold weather. Oh yes, we also enjoyed the freshly cooked tamales from a local vendor. YUM
