“By pairing these everyday materials with one of our country’s most lofty and enduring ideas, he explores the ways in which this living document remains vital as Americans participate in a crucial election,” said Michael Goodson, guest Curator, former Senior Curator, The Wexner Center for the Arts, Columbus.
The work itself can be experienced 24 hours a day from the street outside as well as from inside the gallery. This exhibit will remain lit every night.
The Co has partnered with the League of Women Voters of the Greater Dayton Area to turn a portion of the gallery into a voter registration center. Registrations will be hand-delivered each day to the Montgomery County Board of Elections.
