About Social Spaces

Social Spaces is a community-focused initiative to bring people together in a safe and distanced manner along Pennsylvania Avenue west of the White House. These temporary public space activations transform the vast, sprawling avenue by creating more intimate, human-scaled places in the form of three public art installations. Social Spaces creates dialogue and celebrates cultures through intentionally designed gathering spaces. Learn more here!
