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
