Pictured: A Nasher Museum visitor takes part in a "performative interaction" in local artist Stacey L. Kirby's piece "Power of the Ballot," part of the exhibition "Area 919." Visitors are asked to consider "What obstacles do you overcome to vote?" and then cast a write-in ballot. At certain times, one of her Precinct Officers of the Interior will accept ballots from within Kirby's legal box-walled voting booth.
