Get in Touch

CPS Lives seeks to expand our knowledge of the space students inhabit through the work of our artists produced in the public schools.  The artists seek to enlarge our understanding of the places students inhabit and their worldview through the use of cultural processes.  How public spaces are enriched and developed through the presence of visual production increases the level of the students’ cultural literacy and becomes palpable to the larger civic community, both politically and culturally. This program creates ties to local communities through the exhibitions in their library branches.  By creating this relationship in the public space of a city library we come to understand the complexity and importance of the public school system and the increasing importance of these public sites, their value, their diversity.  The public sites of schools and libraries are not fixed and untouchable, but are dynamic and informed by us.
