The Practice of Democracy: We Hold These Truths at The High Line’s 14th Street Passage


Visitors are invited to explore the ways democracy shows up in our everyday lives, neighborhoods, and worlds. Organized as a past-to-present journey, the immersive exhibition traces the policies, practices, and investments that shape how democracy is defined and experienced in our cities. The exhibition asks, how can you become a “doer” of democracy?
