"Along the Way" on Broadway
The work of the Oakland-based artists collaborative known as ©ause Collective was projected nightly during Sundance. If you missed it on the wall, catch it here and see how engaging the moment as we move through our cities can engage our senses and sensibilities day-by-day, along the way.
Much of our city will be taken apart, bulldozed, excavated and exposed during the coming years. Some of the materials that were once buildings can become something new, something uniquely marking this time of change.
Rather than finding some of these once precious resources in a landfill, we invite you to find ways to celebrate change by creating something new from the rubble of transformation. From furniture to jewelry to art, we look forward to seeing you create new objects we can exhibit in our museum without walls.
Please visit this site again for more information and to find where you can get access to these materials and get started on your transformation of the old city into new museum pieces.
If you’re interested in seeing how a similar project is taking form from the rubble of Hurricane Katrina, please visit the Katrina Furniture Project.
Check out the short video clips in our Story Projects section, in which Ana, and a growing number of other museum guests, share their stories about the museum.
You're getting the hang of it now
