Exhibition Highlight

Open to the Public: Civic Space Now

Open to the Public: Civic Space Now presents contemporary spaces that demonstrate the broad range of approaches to design, access, financing, and management of public spaces. Public space is an essential component of both urban place-making and civic life. Whatever its use and impact, these spaces are intended to serve the public - as complex, confounding, and contested as that goal can prove to be. #civicspacenow
