Parking (Lots of Love): Anna and Frederick Douglass’s 1st Rochester Home” The Douglass Family lived in a house on Alexander Street from 1848-1851, their first home when they moved to Rochester. Now it’s a parking lot at 297 Alexander Street. Through “Parking (Lots of Love)” we are returning an installation “likeness” of Anna Murray Douglass to her home stoop, whose house was a stop on the Underground Railroad. Through a dynamic partnership between RIT, University of Rochester, and Edison Tech, and with help from the Office of the City Historian this project is spearheaded by the artist Shawn Dunwoody, the yarn wrangler Hinda Mandell (RIT) and the carpentry teacher Scott Moore (Edison Career & Technology High School).
