Meaningful connections between urban researchers and artists, thinkers, and community activists are essential to the University’s effort to support research that responds to urban opportunities. Through Salvage, an ongoing series of symposiums sponsored by the   Chicago Center for Contemporary Theory  , UChicago Department of Art History, and the College that explore the value of art and the use and reuse of materials, the Office of Civic Engagement hosted a conversation with Woodlawn neighborhood community members to discuss public art and open space on the mid-South Side. The Office also identified Woodlawn artmakers from the   Revival Arts Collective   (Anton Seals, William Hill, and Andres Hernandez) to speak about their practices at  Salvage 3.0: Built Space  . The symposium explored the act and art of salvaging public art and its positive impact on the community.
