In conceiving and designing Luba Lukova: Designing Justice, the MODA team was committed to creating in-gallery interactive activities that reflect Lukova's vision by helping museum visitors connect with social justice issues and build empathy for one another.
During the exhibition Luba Lukova: Designing Justice, we challenged visitors to use basic craft materials (colored paper, scissors, and glue sticks) to make a poster about a social justice issue meaningful to them. Their work was a ever-changing and inspiring reflection of the issues that occupy our hearts and minds.
