Urban renewal exhibit coming to town

The Center for Urban Pedagogy is apparently bringing its fantastic “Urban Renewal: The City Without a Ghetto” exhibit to Chicago in late March. Mess Hall, a space under the Morse L, will host it. I spent a few hours at the tiny Storefront for Art & Architecture a few months ago, engrossed in the exhibit; it strikes a great balance with excellent exhibit design and content that is aimed at the right level, using the right words. Although there’s certainly a leftist bent, the peculiar political situation that drove urban renewal is explained.
