Fieldwork Collaborative Projects: Jensen Formal Garden Program
May - December 2017
As part of an effort to revitalize the Jensen Formal Garden in Humboldt Park, the Chicago Park District, Fieldwork Collaborative Projects, and the Jensen Formal Garden Working Group have selected four individual artist teams to individually engage with one of the four quadrants of the historic garden. The garden, completed in 1908, was originally designed by Jens Jensen, largely known for his design and contribution to the Prairie School of Landscape Architecture. The public garden is situated in the heart of Humboldt Park, close to the Humboldt Park Boathouse, Field House, and National Museum of Puerto Rican Arts and Culture.
