Columbia College Chicago razed the building which once housed Buddy Guys’ Legends and created the Papermaker’s Garden in its spot. The urban garden showcases the natural, sustainably grown fibers for papermaking. This garden supports deep, hands-on engagement with the process of fiber production as well contemporary ideas in interdisciplinary practice related to art, science, the environment and social practice. The Papermaker's Garden contributes to Columbia College Chicago’s sustainability initiatives, academic curriculum and engagement with the South Loop neighborhood.
The first phase of the Papermaker’s Garden opened in the summer of 2012 and has been a staple of the Wabash Arts Corridor (WAC). We are pleased to announce the second phase of the garden as we unveil a newly designed space that will also now serve as an alternative art site for sculpture, paintings, and performances.
Please join us for the unveiling of the new Papermaker’s Garden at the WAC Crawl.
