In its most simple definition, a mosaic is "a picture or other design constructed from smaller pieces." In addition to the subject and style of the design, it is the choice of materials and the skill in creating and placing the pieces that contribute to the personal, artistic and practical value of the mosaic. Using simple materials may create wonderful works of art. The Egan Office views Chicago as a mosaic of communities and neighborhoods. In these neighborhoods that are pieced together with uneasy symmetry, there are stories and voices unheard, heroes, movements, and recycled dreams.
The Egan office is hosting conversations with community and movement builders, activists, and organizers in an effort to recognize the critical voices that give shape to the Chicago Mosaic.
