Try A Little Tenderness

ART & DESIGN

A house is only as sturdy as its foundation; a community as strong as its members. Taking this to heart, artist Theaster Gates has revitalized an abandoned house in the Greater Grand Crossing neighborhood of South Side, Chicago and turned it into a flourishing neighborhood-based arts project. Here, Life+Times takes a tour of the space and meets its members.

    Hi! I am trying to embed this video into a new website for Theaster’s Rebuild Foundation, but your embed code doesn’t work. Is this video perhaps on YouTube or Vimeo so it can be embedded? Please send link if so. Much appreciated!
