The Archive House serves the immediate Grand Crossing community, a Hyde Park/ Southside Chicago community, a Chicago community curious about art and humanities and a national/ international community through Theaster's and the Rebuild Foundation's notoriety.
The Archive House is not open to the public daily, but often hosts special events and offers tours on request.
What I'm trying to say, is the there has been diverse, sporatic foot traffic, from the neighborhood kids to European gallerists.
The idea to trade for poems happened quickly, but has turned out to be a great way of engaging with this local/ global community just to document the moment.
I have been hording these, but look forward to doling them out amidst other posts.
