Tour the Gallery at your leisure and make your vision known:
An interactive exhibit invites you to write down your thoughts:

What does the Future of MH&W look like? and,
What does this Future look like if MIT is in the leadership?

Invited artists will take the notes submitted by gallery guests and
transpose these onto a permanent mural installation inside the very Gallery
space that will stay and live on past the two weeks.

Put your hands to work: Makers will be leading a Mental Cast & Crown making extravaganza in the 1st floor Student Center couches.

It's about showing support —glamorously— like you've never seen it before.
