SocialWorks is a non-profit that gives the youth of Chicago a platform to perform their art. Many of them use the ugly plaguing the city as forms of inspiration. This poster series follows suit.

All of my n****s is casket pretty

Ain't no one safe in this happy city

I hope to god that my tele don't ring

They'll be shooting whether it was dark or not

The days is pretty dark a lot

Down here it's easier to find a gun than it is to find a f***ing parking spot

The mayor lying saying he didn't see the video footage

Everybody want to know where the truth at

On the Southside where it's no trauma centers

but the most trauma

Vic Mensa

The musical artists featured in the posters are local Chicagoans. They each reflected on the issues surrounding the city and used it as inspiration to

create art.

The aim of the posters are to use their words to continue the creation of art. Reflecting on something negative to create something positive.
