Chicago artist Will Quam of Andersonville says he sees more than just another brick in the wall; he sees the tale of the city’s past.
“Chicago’s common bricks were made from the clay in the Chicago River,” said Quam. “In 1871, you couldn’t build with wood, so brick and stone became the stuff the city was made of.”
He says the bricks tell a story, one brick at a time.
