Description

Res Publica is a socially-engaged project that uses the Supreme Court of the United States as the symbol for concepts of social justice – quite literally the ‘shelter’ under which citizens are protected. The project will see students at the Corcoran College of Art & Design construct a number of human-scale cardboard models of the Supreme Court of the United States for installation at various locations throughout DC; a free construction manual for making the models available via an unique version of the newspaper vending devices that are ubiquitous on the DC street scene; and a limited-edition artwork will raise funds for DC’s homeless community.

---- March 20 - April 27 ----

The DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities' 5x5 project will exhibit 25 ground-breaking public art installations commissioned by artists from around the world.
