Handwriting the Constitution

What does the U.S. Constitution actually say? On January 20, 2017, artist Morgan O’Hara took a pen and paper to the New York Public Library and began to write her own copy of the document in long hand. Since then, more than 2,000 individuals have joined in the project. Now, you can too. Pick up a packet in the Visitor Center, including pen, colored pencils, paper, and a copy of the Constitution & Bill of Rights, or the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous People.  Find a quiet spot in the park, at a picnic table or in the cottonwood trees, where you can copy out a portion of these documents.  Leave your handwritten pages for display in the Visitor Center or take them home.
