Part 3: Adam Green on the Johnson Publishing Archive + Collections

Rebuild Foundation presents “A Conversation Led by Adam Green on the Johnson Publishing Archive + Collection,” the third program of a four-part collections immersion workshop series, Objects of Care: Material Memorial for Tamir Rice.”

About Objects of Care: Material Memorial for Tamir Rice:

In the Fall of 2016, Rebuild Foundation received the Gazebo from the Cudell Recreation Center in Cleveland, Ohio, where twelve-year-old Tamir Rice was murdered by the Cleveland Police. As part of her activism for social justice, Samaria Rice, Tamir’s mother, intends to preserve the structure as a place for care, public interaction and engagement.

The deconstructed Gazebo will be in the care of Rebuild Foundation at the Stony Island Arts Bank from Fall 2017 through Winter 2018. While the material is on display indoors, guest archivists, public historians, scholars and artists will deeply consider material objects across the Frankie Knuckles Records, Johnson Publishing Archive, Glass Lantern Slides and Edward J. Williams Collections. Guest participants are encouraged to use resource material shared in these sessions to create public engagements for the planned installation of the Gazebo on the North Lawn of the Stony Island Arts Bank in 2018.

NOTE: The Gazebo materials will be on display to the public by appointment. To schedule a visit, contact us at
