Gaviotas Comes to Chicago
The Peace Museum has just inaugurated the exhibit "Gaviotas: An Oasis of Imagination" on one of the world's most innovative sustainable cities. At the Harold Washington Library through January 2008, the exhibit features the writing of journalist Alan Weisman. The story is a remarkable one and explores the many creative solutions that residents of Gaviotas have implemented to resolve the challenges of living in one of Colombia's most inhospitable regions. The exhibit also features Gaviotas-like projects in Chicago; several of my photos appear there.
