CITY SOUVENIRS

City Souvenirs is a branch of Hand Pressed Souvenirs that began in 2009 as a collaboration with artist Liene Bosque. Together, we led 15 walks in neighborhoods in Chicago and New York City, collecting roughly 600 City Souvenirs; a history of the collection and previous walks can be seen at citysouvenirs.wordpress.com. More recently, we have each continued to lead these walks independently, bringing in new collaborators and assistants to facilitate the events. While some City Souvenirs walks occur ad-hoc where passersby become participants, other walks are organized as public programming at museums and institutions (such as the Elmhurst Art Museum in 2013 and the Museum of Contemporary Photography in Chicago in 2014). Below are a sample of participatory walks.
