Roman Susan Art Foundation and the Rogers Park/West Ridge Historical Society will present a collaborative exhibit in Spring 2017 reflecting the way neighborhoods emerge and change as a result of land development.

For this project, the Historical Society has placed 100 images from the Rogers Park/West Ridge photography archive into the creative commons. The exhibition seeks public entries which repurpose, reimagine, or respond to these materials.

All completed submissions will be included in the project.

Submitted works will be compiled in digital document, published online under a creative commons license.

Selected entries will be featured in an image-based exhibition displayed at the Historical Society storefront museum located at 7363 North Greenview Avenue.

Digital images will be the primary mode of display for the storefront exhibit; however, we encourage submissions in any medium, including but not limited to text, performance, moving images, design, audio, installation, et cetera.
To participate, please view and download source images on the Rogers Park/West Ridge Historical Society Flickr page at:
