Mark Nelson is one of nearly 270 artists participating in an international month long project called “Art in Place.“ Nelson has installed related work and virus maquettes in the facade windows that reflect upon the Covid 19 impact on so many of our neighbors based on zipcode data.

The work installed in my windows is to honor the struggle of the residents of Pilsen and surrounding neighborhoods who represent a large section of Chicago’s Latin community who’ve been and still are on the front line as medical, service industry and city workers throughout this COVID 19 quarantine. Let us celebrate those who gave and continue to give everything on this unpredictable journey we call life.
