Edison is the largest and most diverse neighborhood in the city of Kalamazoo, Michigan. This installation represents the unique individuals that contribute to the dynamic collective whole that is Edison. This project has engaged and united individuals, families and organizations, living and working together in this neighborhood . Displaying these photographs simultaneously adds beauty to the neighborhood and represents the individuals living here.
The portraits are installed in Washington Square, the central business corridor of the neighborhood. Portraits provide beautification of blighted spaces, and give residents and non-residents a reason to come out and activate the square. “We are Edison” positively represents the Edison neighborhood to the greater Kalamazoo community and the world!
