The Family Reunion is a Happening inspired by the events which occurred in Grant Park on Election Night. The people in attendance were filled with hope in their hearts for change. Many bonding moments occurred in the park, which unified the group into a community. We entered the park as strangers and left with the same connection of being witnesses to history. I would like to recreated this experience by initiating a Happening in Millennium Park, which would be a gesture commemorating the spirit of this historic moment.
The Cloud Gate in Millennium Park is one of the most photographed landmarks in the United States. It is considered a Chicago icon and attracts visitors from around the world. This location is essential to the performance because the public will witness this symbolic act of unity from Chicago residents while visiting this famous work of art.
