Tamir Rice Gazebo Memorial reconstructed with help from Rebuild Foundation: ‘For every Tamir that we know, there’s probably 20 or 30 that we don’t’

Public space as a place for reckoning and healing.

“We know that by having the gazebo on site, it gives us this great opportunity to say to people: What are the ways we need to talk about race and injustice? How do we create safe spaces in black and brown neighborhoods?”

Theaster Gates on the gazebo in which 12-year old Tamir Rice was fatally shot, reconstructed as a memorial at Stony Island Arts Bank in Chicago.
