Strategy

The exhibits travel to communities and “pop up” at community organizations, in parks, in busy parking lots, on busy streets, outside of museums, on or near college campuses, at music festivals, and during organized community events throughout the United States. The outsides of the exhibits are designed to invite people in and welcome them to the different spaces.
