“For nearly a century, freight rolled across the Bloomingdale line on Chicago’s Northwest side. Today the tracks are aligning to convert the line into a mixed-use linear park. Reframing Ruin: a Prelude to the Bloomingdale Trail features photography inspired by the trail’s urban landscape, while allowing viewers to imagine the potential it can have for Chicago once completed. Artists will share their own interpretation of the future trail, its relationship to the diverse neighborhoods it cuts through, and how we currently interact with this stretch of land. It will reveal new perspectives on a sometimes-overlooked part of Chicago’s industrial past.” – Curated by Shannon Bourne
