Todaro proposes to work onsite, at the Miami Shores Village Bayside Park, where a plaque describes the founding of a community called “Biscayne.” She will make a series of frottage drawings from the raised text of the plaque, extracting letters, words and phrases to make a list poem that is also an alternative history, from the Tequesta to Jim Crow.
