Awardee: The Living New Deal
The Living New Deal is dedicated to public education and documentation of the people, programs, and infrastructure of the New Deal, and will use rivets from the historic East Span in conjunction with its projects, which include art exhibits, public lectures, and tours. The project incorporating rivets from the old Bay Bridge will have the theme "Building Bridges, Not Walls" and will highlight the contributions of immigrant workers and the multicultural diversity and internationalism of the Bay Area. One theme of the exhibit will be the role of immigrants in the building the Bay Area's bridges. The exhibit and related public programs are planned for two San Francisco locations-the San Francisco Public Library History Center and the Canessa Gallery in North Beach.
