Garfield Alive: A Livable Neighborhood

October 7, 2016 @ 8:00 AM - October 29, 2016 @ 5:00 PM

Rachel Saul and Yu-San Cheng believe in the heart of a community, its people.  Recently, Pittsburgh and it’s neighborhoods have been experiencing drastic changes, almost daily.  With their project, Garfield Alive, they hope engage residents in a continued conversation about their own imaginations for their neighborhood; partnering with community members to stay invested in and advocate for community centric redevelopment.

To complete the project, Rachel and Yu-San will interview youth at Assemble programs along with adults, enlisting the help of Kirsten Rispin to capture voice recordings.  Doing this the team will learn what the residents love about Garfield; and what changes they think would beneficial to their own neighborhood.  Once the community shares their thoughts, Rachel and Yu-San will paint one of the gallery walls at Assemble to reflect this conversation.  The community will then be invited to paint the second gallery wall, displaying their hopes and dreams for Garfield.

At the culmination of the exhibition, Rachel and Yu-San will put together a book that captures all of the responses from the community, so that their voice can be shared.

A special thanks to Pittsburgh Center for Creative Reuse for extending a project sponsorship to Garfield Alive, for materials!
