The Montclare Intergenerational Arts Project started last month. This project is designed to provide opportunities for students at Josephine Locke Elementary School to work with residents at Bethesda Home. The teens and elderly individuals are working on writing, visual art & sound recording activities that are leading toward an interdisciplinary body of work that will be shown to the public soon.
Montclare is a neighborhood on Chicago's northwest side whose population includes Latino, Polish and other ethnicities. Its history includes connections with iconic American brands such as Radio Flyer and Mars, Inc.
The Montclare Intergenerational Arts Project is being supported in part by a Neighborhood Arts Program grant from the City of Chicago.
