Local artists gathered at the White House to participate in a “I Want a President” reading – a public art project to challenge the expectations society holds for politicians.

The text participants read was developed in writing workshops in New York and D.C.

“I Want a President” is the culminating event of the Creative Time Summit D.C. held in partnership with the Corcoran School of the Arts and Design this weekend.

“All of us have a right to be respected and our representatives should represent the full breadth of we the people,” Saisha Grayson, I Want a President Co-Organizer, said. “That’s what this project is about.”
