Tonika is a visual artist and photographer from Chicago’s South Side Englewood neighborhood.
In 2010, she helped co-found Resident Association of Greater Englewood (R.A.G.E.) and now she serves as its full-time Program Manager. She was featured in Chicago magazine as a 2017 Chicagoan of the Year.
Her work has been featured at Rootwork Gallery in Pilsen, the Chicago Cultural Center, Harold Washington Library Center, and the Chicago Reader.
Her latest multi-media project titled “Folded Map” illustrates Chicago’s residential segregation. She’ll show photos from this project and share stories about the participants at this week’s Frunchroom.
