MLK Memorial in Marquette Park
We have been honored to work with the Inner City Muslim Action Network (IMAN) in creating this living memorial to Chicago's 1960s Fair Housing Movement, specifically the 1966 marches in Marquette Park. CPAG Artists John Pitman Weber and Sonja Handerson have dedicated themselves to thoughtfully and skillfully carving these three red brick walls.
