In this video we took a day to reach out to those people on the L platforms waiting for their trains, and asked them for a one liner to anyone in their life or just a message they wanted to share. This video is a collective “poem” created to give Chicago a face through words. Throughout the video you can meet the beautiful and diverse faces of Chicago along with a personal message from each person. Take a moment to really acknowledge those around you whether it is family, friends, or someone waiting for the train. Everyone is a part of Chicago and everyone has a story to tell. Here are a few, of the many, Chicago was willing to share.



Creating A Public Poem was inspired by the people of Chicago.
