Woodlawn Youth Solutions is a project that develops leadership skills in youth through public art and beautification. WYS is transforming the planters at 62nd and Ingelside into community markers by redesigning, replanting, and relocating them with prominent community groups. They will be beautiful, colorful, and Woodlawn-specific, serving as a marker of community involvement for all those who adopt them. Apply to adopt a planter now! Contact Dorothy Pytel, 773/289-6763, firstname.lastname@example.org And watch our progress on our blog: http://woodlawnyouth.blogspot.com/
This project is being organized by Christ Way M.B. Church, architreasures, Brickyard Garden, the Office of Alderman Willie B. Cochran (20th Ward), and the Civic Knowledge Project at the University of Chicago.
