Since the early 20th century, Chicago has been in a continual flux of migrants; all seeking a place to grow positive social, emotional, and economic stability. Hopes & Dreams uplifts the Logan Square and Bucktown communities through the use of cultural icons. Hearts and stars – dedicate space to a constant love for Chicago. An eagle landing – supports courage, freedom, hope, and strength. The Logan Square and Bucktown communities are collective symbols of both destinations and homes. It is important to remember that with migration, comes a unique sense of co-existence, a juxtaposing of past and newly shared experiences, and a cultivated connection to place.
