Beauty in our Neighborhood is a collaboration between photographer Shane Wynn and the League of Creative Interventionists. Shane Wynn and Stephanie Leonardi, a Summit Lake community organizer visited the residents at Summit lake, to document what they love about the neighborhood. The resultant photographs and quotes were compiled into a book to share with the residents and celebrate neighborhood pride. Portraits from the project are displayed in an outdoor installation along the tow path trail that circles Summit Lake. Additionally, Shane worked with the Leaven Lenses apprenticeship program, to teach youth photography skills. Photos from that project were displayed in an outdoor installation adjacent to Shane's own work and included in the book to share.
This project supported by the Knight Foundation and Reimagining the Civic Commons.
