National Public Housing Museum
Chicago, IL

The Making of the National Public Housing Museum is a multiauthor publication that documents the process of developing a museum centered on the voices and experiences of some of our nation’s most marginalized communities. Featuring essays and interviews, the book details how public housing residents inform the contents of the museum and the ways their stories are shared. Additionally, the book provides a visual narrative for exhibition strategies that embrace art and design and their role in shaping perceptions, knowledge, and emotion around such issues as race, class, gender, and other themes central to our common future, and that serve as a call to our nation.
