After passing the circulation desk on the main floor of the Mt. Pleasant Library, the satellite exhibit for “A Right to the City” is a prominent feature that demands attention. With its interlocking panels and dynamic visuals, visitors are beckoned to take a closer look at the new structure.
A closer examination reveals the subject of the structure – the neighborhood. For residents, perhaps it speaks about the events that they have witnessed and perhaps they learn about how their neighborhood came into its current state.
For those reminiscing and for those with curiosity, the participatory panel stands out. The dedicated hotline allows for participation for residents who look at the exhibit and think “I remember when…”. It also allows for the curious to explore their neighborhood through the eyes of those who helped shape it.
