Kathy Gemperle, an Edgewater artist and educator, served as the lead artist on this ceramic work entitled Building the Heart of Edgewater. Funded by a grant from the City of Chicago's Cultural Arts Program in 1986, the work was produced by community residents including senior citizens and elementary school students. It is composed of a series of ceramic tiles and depicts many different people and activities mostly in white and enveloped by a large heart, edged with colorful scenes of Edgewater residents, buildings, and the lakefront.
