The South Deering Art Fair
Driving east on 95th Street near the Calumet
River I passed an opening in a fence. Not able to let it go, I turned back and drove in. I
stood underneath the Skyway and next to two
sets of tracks and saw there wasn't a spot that was untouched by murals and tags. I was there longer than I wanted to be and
should have been but I wanted to catch what I could.

makeshift play area in a wooded lot in the
shadow of the Skyway. This isn't someone's
backyard, it's at the end of a dead end street,
97th & Baltimore in South Chicago, along a
set of train tracks. Residents in Kenilworth or
Homer Glen wouldn't find this acceptable, why should these folks?
I See David Copperfield's Been Here

I mean for, the skyline. I'm sure this isn't unique but it's the first time I faced a wall
