Artist's 'Folded Map' Project Aims To Break Down Cultural Barriers
A Chicago photographer's "Folded Map" project aims to break down cultural barriers that separate a city troubled by segregation.
Visual artist and community activist Tonika Johnson lives in Englewood, a predominantly black neighborhood on Chicago's South Side. Johnson is using her craft in a unique way to try to break down cultural barriers that separate a city troubled by segregation. She'll have a multimedia exhibit on her "Folded Map" project at the Loyola University Museum of Art in July 2018.
