Community as Intellectual Space


The 4th annual Community as Intellectual Space symposium was held June 13-15. I will be chewing on all that transpired for some time. For now, let me express my pleasure at meeting Josue Pellot, an artist who did a neon project in a storefront on Paseo Boricua. I look forward to talking with him more about its location in the Puerto Rican community near Humboldt Park, its juxtaposition with the COORS sign, his takes on issues of authenticity and claiming space, and so on.
