There is a mounting need for solutions to our national housing crises. Can art help us meet these challenges? The Most Beautiful Home… Maybe offers a nerdy and raucous vision for guaranteed housing. Hosted by chanteuse Zébra (a zebra), this multimedia, immersive performance juxtaposes housing data, Lyndon B. Johnson, and torch songs while time traveling through stories of Americans facing home insecurity, past and present. This interactive experience takes audiences on a fantastic sensurround journey to envision a future where everyone has a home. Created by Mark-n-Sparks (ashley sparks and Mark Valdez) and produced by the Mixed Blood Theatre of Minneapolis, The Most Beautiful Home…Maybe grew from conversations with housing advocates, activists, developers, government workers, renters, and people facing home insecurity. This performance is part of a multi-year, multi-platform experiment by Mark-n-Sparks to influence housing policy through art and dialogue.

Mark-n-Sparks has also partnered with the Japanese American Cultural and Community Cnenter (JACCC) and Sustainable Little Tokyo (SIT) for a day-long housing symposium on May 21, 2022 entitled, “Housewarming: Little Tokyo & Skid Row.”
