The School of Art and Design, Gallery 400, and the College of Architecture, Art, and Urban Planning host a panel discussion on 100 Victories, 10,000 Tears, an installation created by Daniel J. Martinez for Culture in Action: A Public Art Program of Sculpture Chicago.

With Daniel J. Martinez, artist and professor, University of California at Irvine; William Adelman, labor historian; Roberta Feldman, associate professor of architecture, University of Illinois at Chicago; and George Hemmens, professor of urban planning, University of Illinois at Chicago.

100 Victories, 10,000 Tears explores social movement and displacement within cities—how urban neighborhoods change when one ethnic group replaces another. Working with historians and community leaders, Martinez traced the history of the immigrant labor movement on the city's West Side to identify important yet seldom recognized historic events. The installation is located near Maxwell and Peoria Streets between 14th Street and 14th Place.
