Public Knowledge: Take Part

Public Knowledge is a collaborative, multifaceted project that promotes public dialogue among a dynamic network of partners on the cultural impact of urban and technological change in the San Francisco Bay Area, and the stakes involved in surviving, resisting, adapting to and attempting to shape these changes. Public Knowledge is led by SFMOMA in collaboration with the San Francisco Public Library.

Led by the artist duo Bik Van der Pol, the Public Knowledge project Take Part anchors expansive conversations about San Francisco—its past, present, and future—to a physical object: a 1,000-square-foot model of the city built in 1938 by the Works Progress Administration (WPA).
