‘Dreams Of A City’ Connects Chicagoans Through Postcards

In 2012, Chicago-based artist Jenny Lam left thousands of postcards around the city with a simple inscription: “Tell me one thing you dream of doing before you die.” Since then, more than 600 cards have been mailed back to her. Lam stops by Reset to tell us what she’s learned about her neighbors nine years later.

GUEST: Jenny Lam, Chicago artist and independent curator
