Community Banner Project

How can a banner represent a potential community space? Local artist, Liza Blair, and Glass House Collective recently unveiled a community banner project at the corner of North Chamberlain and Glass Street.  The banner hangs in a vacant corner lot, a potential community space for Glass Street residents.

Liza’s work began during Glass House Collective’s community meetings, a time for residents to give opinions and responses about the future of Glass Street. Liza met with a few residents who previously expressed their passion for a community space. While visiting with them, Liza snapped candid photos. The result of these photos are hanging on a side of a vacant building right next to the proposed community space.

The banner is a reminder to Glass Street residents that the neighborhood is, and will continue working together.

Eighteen residents showed their support by helping Liza in creating the community banner project.
