Anchored around the belief that artists are essential to the fabric of society as thinkers, visionaries and changemakers, AFIELD and Gertie are excited to co-organize a morning exploring Engelwood with Tonika Johnson and Sherman “Dilla” Thomas. Guests will learn more about Johnson’s Folded Map project and her recent installation, “Inequity for Sale,” an interactive and visual exhibition created in partnership with the National Public Housing Museum to highlight homes sold through land sale contracts in the 1950s and 60s.

Rooted in the desire to change perspectives about Engelwood and Chicago’s south side, Sherman “Dilla” Thomas will present his traditional Mahogany Neighborhood Tour, providing historical context of the neighborhood through the lens of Johnson’s social and artistic practice. At 4pm, guests are invited for a complimentary drink at Gertie’s monthly (inter)mezzo party in collaboration with Blind Barber in Fulton Market at 4pm.
