RaD Lab - Avondale Community Lemonade Stand
RaD Lab artist Nia Easley presents her final public engagement in Avondale.
Words from the Artist:
"Residents of Avondale: How do you experience community in the neighborhood?
I invite you to visit my lemonade stand this Saturday near the Kimball/Wisner/Wellington intersection.
ABOUT THIS PROJECT: Both past and present forces collide to shape a place. The expressway that chopped this area in two; the immigrant families who founded a church and then disappeared leaving only street names as evidence of their residence; the family-owned masonry business that is now generations old–have all left their imprint on the current neighborhood. But, the most important factor in the overall expression of this history and how it is felt in the present are the people that dwell here now. I believe that there is still a lot we can learn from each other. I will share the thoughts of our neighbors and collect your responses over lemonade."
