Public Property-June 17-August 19, 2012

This summer, we're holding a participatory exhibition, created collectively by the public. You decide what the exhibition will be. From Dec. 2011-March 2012, a series of public choices were made, from deciding the exhibition title and theme, to selecting artworks. First, we asked you to browse the collection and tell us which artworks you would collect and tag them with key words. We found some popular themes from among your choices. We held a vote to determine which would become this exhibition's theme, and you chose "Creatures." Using an online voting tool, the public selected the works of art to include in the exhibition. While on view, visitors will continue to contribute to, and change, this exhibition.


America's Privateer Lynx
