Event Description:

April 7 – September 30, 2018

MDC Museum of Art and Design
Freedom Tower, 2nd Floor
600 Biscayne Boulevard, Miami

The first design exhibition scheduled in the MDC Museum of Art and Design after its April 2018 reopening, By the People: Designing a Better America will explore the challenges faced by urban, suburban and rural communities in the U.S. and its bordering countries. 

Based on more than two years of field research—traveling to shrinking post-industrial cities, sprawling metro regions, struggling rural towns, border regions, areas impacted by natural and man-made disaster, and places of persistent poverty, this exhibition presents collaborative designs for more equitable, inclusive and sustainable communities. 

Organized by the Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian American Design Museum, and curated by Cynthia E. Smith, the exhibition features sixty design projects from every region across the United States, the exhibition will highlight design solutions that expand access to education, food, health care and affordable housing; increase social and economic inclusion; offer improved alternative transportation options; and provide a balanced approach to land use between the built and natural environment.

By the People aims to empower visitors to see themselves as designers—not just of objects, but also of ideas, strategies, and solutions that improve their daily lives. The exhibition will showcase the innovative and impactful actions generated through design, and inspire creative problem-solving at local, regional, national, and even international levels.

This exhibition requires museum admission.
