Whose Lakefront

Whose Lakefront is a performative public art piece that highlights unceded indigenous land in the heart of downtown Chicago. It marks the original 1830 shoreline at Michigan Ave and the unceded landfill to the east through public workshops that invite the community to examine settler colonialist assumptions about land, place, history, and belonging.
