Today was a huge day in U.S.-Japan relations as President Obama visited Hiroshima. But did you know what Jackson Park also played a role in U.S.-Japan relations? Robert Karr, President of Project 120 Chicago, joins Justin to discuss the efforts to develop and implement plans and projects to holistically revitalize the nationally significant, complex historic urban spaces we call the “South Parks.” Robert also talks about SKY LANDING, Yoko Ono’s first permanent public art work in the Americas,  that is coming to the Garden of the Phoenix in Jackson Park.
