Philadelphia, PA 1991

The reclamation of five vacant lots was a collaboration, directed and designed by Lilly Yeh, the community, and Angelo Ciotti. The theme of the four-year project was Mali West Africa and the Chinese Garden. Local labor was used, and union scale wages were paid throughout the project. Support was provided by the National Endowment for the Arts and the P.E.W. Maroreal trust.
