Sense of Place is a unique, temporary exhibition that enhances the visitors experience by stimulating their sense of sight, smell, hearing, taste, and touch through installation, sculpture, and graffiti art. While incorporating urban design elements, this exhibition takes place within a city using the cityscape as the arena allowing visitors to have 24- hour access. The five gallery pods are sprinkled throughout the city, leading visitors on a journey discovering public art and local hot spots. The architecture of the pods was specifically chosen as juxtaposition to the neoclassical architecture found in DC. The exhibition invites visitors to participate in immersive environments presenting a platform that calls for true public art. This is aimed to draw a connection between the visitor and the built environment, providing people with a new journey through the nation's capital.
