As part of the Present Tense, Excavating History project in Braddock, several of the collaborating artists led a workshop with area youth, as part of Heritage Community Initiatives programming. Heritage Community Initiatives is housed in Carnegie's first bank, a site of the installation. The workshop included a 'noticing' walk around Braddock. Here the participants are making rubbings of different textures and images they find.
