GatewayGIS Neighborhood Banner Project

The National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency is currently under construction adjacent to the Pruitt-Igoe housing project site. Part of this large federal complex is the NGA West campus, which will put its stamp on the region for generations to come. In response to the significant changes occurring in the community, the Neighborhood Banner Project came into being, a partnership between GatewayGIS and CAM. In an artistic act of reverse erasure, students at various educational institutions gained valuable graphic design training and mentorship from CAM Resident Teaching Artists Kevin McCoy, Simiya Sudduth, L.M. Flowers, Jayvn Solomon, and others, in the creation of designs for banners that celebrate African American leaders and landmarks in the neighborhoods surrounding NGA West. A selection of the completed banners will be on view at the museum.
