Center for Urban Pedagogy (CUP) will be conducting the New Museum’s Professional Development for Teachers on November 2.  Included in the current exhibition “The Last Newspaper,” Brooklyn-based CUP is a nonprofit organization that uses art, design, and visual culture to improve public participation in urban planning and community design, particularly among historically underrepresented communities.  CUP believes in the legibility of the world around us.  What can we learn by investigation?  By learning how to investigate, we train ourselves to change what we see.
