Sweater #235


As a visually aware walker, I couldn’t pass this surface without posting a sweater.  Used for posting no parking announcements, this panel is covered with the remains of staples from these posts.  As it is also a posting place, a sweater seemed like an ideal object to put in the absence of the parking signs for this particular day. Keeping the sweater company are the rusted paper crumbles from these posted signs. Additionally, this sign post was adjacent to the YMCA of Evanston that recently held the Race Against Hate in June.  And while this race was probably geared to the issues of racism, one of the contributing factors of racism is socio-economic divides that arise from inequalities of advantages such as education, housing, medical care and nourishment.
