New York City’s Department of Sanitation (DSNY) and New York University have teamed up to create “Loaded Out: Making a Museum,” an exhibit about the sanitation department’s history and importance in New York City. The exhibit, which includes historic images and objects from the DSNY, will be on display, for 24-hour public viewing, from March 28 through May 5 at NYU’s Windows at Kimmel Center (the corner of LaGuardia Place and West 3rd Street). NYU students and DSNY personnel will be setting up the exhibit on Fri., March 28, beginning at 9:30 a.m.

The exhibit evolved from a course, “Making a Museum: Materializing Regimes of Value with the New York City Department of Sanitation,” taught by Haidy Geismar, a professor in NYU’s Museum Studies Program and in its Department of Anthropology, and Robin Nagle, director of NYU’s Draper Interdisciplinary Master’s Program and the DSNY’s anthropologist-in-residence. Nagle’s book, Picking Up, is out next year from Farrar, Straus & Giroux.
