Above is a card selected from A Monument to the Anxious and Hopeful, currently on display in the Rubin Museum’s spiral lobby. Created by artist Candy Chang and writer James A. Reeves, the wall asks visitors to write down the reasons for why they are hopeful and why they are anxious. Once they have written down their hopes and anxieties on separate cards, they place them on either the hopeful side (blue) or the anxious side (red). The Monument then is constantly shifting, growing, and changing as it continually reflects our visitors greatest hopes and biggest anxieties.
