Event description

Description

Displaced people around the world are forced to make difficult decisions about what they take and what they leave behind. This is true for diverse communities from the Baltic states to the public housing developments of Chicago, where individuals have organized to rebuild a new sense of home. Join the National Public Housing Museum and Balzekas Museum of Lithuanian Culture for a pop-up exhibition that invites participants to share stories about the loss of home due to political, economic and social upheaval, and the objects that give meaning to their lives. Feel free to bring an object with you that reminds you of a home from the past.

This program is a part of the Chicago Cultural Alliance's Inherit Chicago. Inherit Chicago is a city wide festival of art, ideas and performance at neighborhood heritage museums and cultural centers. Head to InheritChicago.org for a full list of events!
