Voice of the City is committed to multi-arts including embracing new mediums and technologies to make art like podcasts, electronic storytelling, blogs, and more. Below is ongoing and future projects:
Lynn Basa (resident/owner of 2912 N Milwaukee) discovered a previous owner's plan, Magdalena Cervenka -- a painter of some renown, to create an elaborate art exhibit that would honor the history of the building and immigrants who had lived there before. Magdalena found letters in the attic written by the previous owners, penned to family and loved ones back home: including, a young Polish sausage maker who bought the building in 1905, and a Mexican bridal seamstress who acquired the building in 1963. Magdalena seems to have disappeared in early 2006. Her whereabouts are still unknown. It has become Lynn's calling, along with fellow collaborators: Alva Nelms and Christopher Ellis to replicate, to the best of their ability, Magdalena's grand vision and bring her planned exhibit to life.
