It's great that they're making this an opportunity to engage with all types of communities: "The artists are currently raising money through a Kickstarter campaign to help make this continuing project a reality. The plan is to create the exhibit on the ground floor of a new Broadway Housing development which includes a children’s museum, a childcare center, a roof-top garden, and new affordable apartments (targeting low-income or special-needs residents)."
But I find the material of sugar to be strange, epecifically in low income neighborhoods, bec it sends out a strange message. I think these videos by kids about diabetes in low income neighborhoods say it better than I do: http://www.good.is/posts/how-youth-are-using-poetry-to-change-the-conversation-about-diabetes
