The popular "Right to the City" exhibition on gentrification has been reproduced into satellite exhibits on view in DC Public Library branches in Mt. Pleasant, Anacostia, Woodridge and Shaw. The Southwest exhibition will open late in the Spring and the Chinatown location is to be announced. Public programs on the exhibits and on museum initiatives are being hosted by the Library and other partner organizations.
