Cooper Hewitt Presents "By the People" Including work by Fallen Fruit

Sep 30 2016 - Feb 26 2017


Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum
2 East 91st Street
New York, NY

"By The People: Designing A Better America," the third exhibition of Cooper Hewitt’s series devoted to humanitarian design, will examine how design is challenging social and economic inequality across America. Curator of Socially Responsible Design Cynthia E. Smith conducted over two years of field research—traveling to shrinking post-industrial cities, sprawling metro regions, struggling rural towns, along our border, areas impacted by natural and man-made disaster, and places of persistent poverty—in search of collaborative designs for more equitable, inclusive and sustainable communities. A project by Fallen Fruit will be among the more than 60 works at the exhibition.
