History and Preservation was created by Tommy Reddicks, Executive Director at the Paramount School of Excellence. The story told by this piece is a tale of historic reclamation and the preservation of a wildlife habitat. The bricks used in these two structures were salvaged from 100-year-old manhole access tunnels at the corner of Washington and Emerson on the East Side. Reconfigured, they have become a metaphorical home for the chimney swift, a threatened bird species.
