The High Line announces that a new exhibition, The Practice of Democracy: We Hold These Truths, is on now view through October 2, 2022 in the High Line’s 14th Street Passage. Through an immersive installation designed by April De Simone of the non-profit research and design agency Designing for Democracy, visitors are invited to explore the ways democracy shows up in our everyday lives, neighborhoods, and worlds. Organized as a past-to-present journey, the exhibition and related programming trace the policies, practices, and investments that shape how democracy is defined and experienced in our cities and the High Line in particular, and offer communities opportunities to connect through these experiences.
A day ahead of its public opening, San Francisco’s new Presidio Tunnel Tops park held a ribbon-cutting ceremony, where some of the park’s largest donors came together with community leaders and politicians to celebrate their work.
U.S. Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg paid a visit to South Los Angeles on July 8, visiting ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach and the city of Compton. He also participated in a ribbon cutting ceremony for the newly opened “K” line, the new Crenshaw-to-LAX metro line.
