Architecture creates an indelible mark on the landscape; buildings speak to the culture of the people. We are tied together by the stories of our lives and the places we’ve experienced, marking indelible moments in time. The GREYSTONE Collective is an established Home + Studio for Black Queer + Trans Makers. Indelible ORIGINS celebrates the odyssey of Place + People preserved in the built environment of an early 19th-century “GREYSTONE” as a cultural laboratory located in the heart of Bronzeville, Chicago’s landmark Black Metropolis.

Indelible ORIGINS | Place + People is a four-part public engagement series (The BLACK Domestic Living & Dining Roomscapes, Venerate! Venerate!, Why WE are Here, THE Artisanal Roomscape LABORATORY), organized by Founder | Creative Placemaker Clemenstein Love, celebrating the identity and creative narratives of The GREYSTONE Collective’s artists, makers, and guest collaborators while establishing ancestral ties to the neighborhood’s historical Black makers—Ida B. Wells, Richard Wright, Gwendolyn Brooks, and Margaret Burroughs. Through its combined histories (who, what, why, how and where), The GREYSTONE Collective endeavors to have a cultural impact on Chicago’s South Side—today and tomorrow.  

Indelible ORIGINS | Place + People is supported by Hyde Park Art Center’s Artists Run Chicago Fund as part of Art Design Chicago.
