Museum Studies Visiting Scholar: What’s the Object of this Museum?  Everyday Resistance at the National Public Housing Museum

Join the Museum Studies Program as they present a lecture by visiting scholar, Lisa Yun Lee (Director, National Public Housing Museum, Chicago)
 

Worker cooperatives to build a solidarity economy, contemporary art that grapples with history and unleashes radical imaginations about our collective futures, everyday objects and labels written by public housing residents, cultural work that contributes to more just public policies and reparations, collective joy and civic love.  Learn about the work of the National Public Housing Museum and how a cultural institution contributes to the ongoing struggle for housing as a human right.
