What form did life take 100 years ago?
Formed Histories: a guided spatial tour
Site-specific projects produced by Civic Studio complemented a curated tour of important sites from local history of the West Side neighborhood of Grand Rapids, MI. These projects were meant to re-imagine life 100 years ago, making connections between the past, present, and future of the city. Highlights of the tour include explorations of the rich history of labor, the former canal, and what lies below the highway. In addition, these site-specific projects engaged tour participants in an interactive, educational, and playful experience.
This Civic Studio Project began at Showroom in January and continued through April 2014. For more on Civic Studio: civicstudio.org
