The curators will be joined by:

• Justin Garrett Moore, Program Officer, Humanities in Place, The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation
• Marcel Acosta, Executive Director, National Capital Planning Commission
• Teresa Durkin, Executive Vice President, Trust for the National Mall
• Host: Seri Worden, Senior Field Director, National Trust for Historic Preservation
