NYCxDESIGN is honored to present the I Was Here Project as a Design Pavilion in celebration of Archtober, the City’s architecture festival. Hosted by Spireworks on The Podium of the iconic One World Trade Center, I Was Here makes its debut in New York City from October 12-22, 7:00pm to 9:00pm daily.
Collaborative in nature, the ‘I Was Here’ project is a series of public art and public history installations that serve as a mindful, reverent, and powerful acknowledgment of slavery in American history and presented in a variety of mediums and methods.
Explore the roles design and art play in cultivating public awareness, demanding the attention of communities at large to societal issues, and creating testament to honor the power, beauty, dignity and grace of those who were instrumental in building the foundation of our country.
