I am interested in your questions about distinguishing between art and life
in such projects as Rick Lowe's community row houses. Perhaps an easier
but similar project is Lily Yeh's village of arts and humanities in north
Philladelphia. She began with making a mural, the community got engaged,
and now they have a whole area of the city in gardens, houses,
parks--renovated by the community members and children with the help of one
expert to teach them. But all the activities and efforts are based in and
begin with the arts, the parks are sculptural, the alleys are alive with
mosaic etheopian angels (executed by a former homeless man from the
neighborhood). I think her kids after school program is on the web and
might be interested in sharing their place, but I don't have their address.
Any surfers want to try to find it?
