Artist Talk: South Side Chicago Family of Brett Swinney, RAISIN Exhibiting Artist

IWalt and Bessie Theus purchased 100 West 342 Place in 1965 with the intention of providing a home for their four children. For 56 years, the Theus family has made West 342 Place home. For this unique radio broadcast, RAISIN curator Asha Van and RAISIN artist Brett Swinney lay the foundation for the conversation between Caroline Theus Swinney and Walt Theus Jr. to discuss their experiences of growing up in a South Side Chicago home. Caroline and Walt discuss family life, growing up in their neighborhood, and eventually sharing their experiences with their children.

This conversation will be broadcast on Lumpen Radio.
