In celebration of the upcoming Arts Lawn, the South Side Home Movie Project invites you to walk alongside vintage scenes of public life drawn from our home movie collections, depicting moments of intimacy, connection, and attentive care that green space nurtures across Chicago’s South Side. These home movie stills were selected by a multi-generational team of co-curators composed of film donors, local high school students, South Side artists and project interns.

The co-curators are: Rae Chardonnay, Jeanette Foreman, Kareema Godhrawala, Justina Ibarra, Ciera Alyse McKissick, Selin Oh and Rai Mckinley Terry.
