The banners created last year to celebrate the community art project “Chalk Talk Kenosha,” organized by UW-Parkside Galleries and ExposeKenosha, are on view of the WI State Capital during Jan and Feb, 2013. This project was inspired by Minneapolis-based artist Wing Young Huie represents the collaboration of over a hundred community participants from the public schools (teachers and students), Kenosha Literacy Council, Boys and Girls Club of Kenosha, Parkside students and senior citizens. Nearly 200 individual photos were taken in workshops lead by volunteers and the photos were shown in Kenosha downtown businesses, in senior living residencies, in public schools and in the Fine Arts Gallery at Parkside.
