Blueberries & Cherries

Over 62,000,000 people voted for Donald Trump. Why? I watched and read plenty of analysis and opinions from experts. But eyeing each other suspiciously through the filtered lens of political punditry and yelling at each other across social media was confusing and misleading. I wanted to find out for myself. So I invited a few Trump voters over for dinner to talk face-to-face.

Fueled by the transformative power of art, the Lab constructs human-centered activations in inspiring environments that facilitate connections between neighbors, reinforce community bonds, and strengthen relationships.
