Preserving Chicago Residential Architecture with Newspaper

Catherine Elizabeth's avatar Catherine Elizabeth

I was inspired to create this collection while walking through my neighborhood and seeing many historic Chicago homes demolished. Each artwork contains over one hundred individual pieces of newspaper, cut or torn and pasted in place. Through this series, I hope to inform and educate others about the importance of preserving historic residential architecture in the Windy City.
