The phrase, ‘every day at six’ comes from the history of Villa Grove, a town in east central Illinois. For decades, there was a whistle mounted on the town’s water tower and every day at 6:00 p.m., it sounded. Villa Grove was one of many Illinois towns where blacks were not allowed to own or rent property, and this daily signal warned black laborers that it was time to head home. There are a surprising number of towns in Illinois that utilized similar alarms, some even until the late 1990s. These places were commonly called sundown towns.

It is important to me that there is a specific narrative or history being referenced in the work, one that is imbedded in this landscape and its vernacular architecture – a history that is often nearly invisible.
