Handwriting the Constitution Community Art Series


Date: August 20, 2020

What does the U.S. Constitution actually say? On January 20, 2017, artist Morgan O’Hara took a pen and paper to the central branch of the New York Public Library and began to write her own copy of the document in long hand in what she describes as “a form of protest for introverts”. She was soon joined by others. Since then, there have been some 119 sessions on three different continents and more than 2,000 participants.

Morgan says: “This art practice was created so that people will know their rights, deepen their understanding of laws created to protect these rights, and helps resist negative thinking. To date approximately 2000 people have participated, both nationally and internationally. The goal of this art practice is to encourage people to hold their own Handwriting sessions on a recurring basis; to create a physical and psychological space that explores the practice of concentrated writing as an art form, and a process designed to bring people together in a quiet and calming way, all by focusing on human rights.”

This summer, Morris-Jumel Mansion will be hosting the first online version of the Handwriting Project, collaborating with the Old Stone House and other Historic House Trust sites in New York City, as well as a community of artists in Europe. We will meet every Thursday from noon to 2:00 p.m. EDT beginning on August 13 and ending on September 17, with a special session on Wednesday, August 26 to observe the Centennial of Ratification of the 19th Amendment and women’s right to vote. Commit to spending time with the U. S. Constitution, The Universal Declaration of Human Rights, or choose another document.

Participation is casual and you can register to participate in one or more sessions. Members will have the opportunity to share their documents.

Handwriting the Constitution Community Art Series


Date: September 10, 2020

What does the U.S. Constitution actually say? On January 20, 2017, artist Morgan O’Hara took a pen and paper to the central branch of the New York Public Library and began to write her own copy of the document in long hand in what she describes as “a form of protest for introverts”. She was soon joined by others. Since then, there have been some 119 sessions on three different continents and more than 2,000 participants.

Morgan says: “This art practice was created so that people will know their rights, deepen their understanding of laws created to protect these rights, and helps resist negative thinking. To date approximately 2000 people have participated, both nationally and internationally. The goal of this art practice is to encourage people to hold their own Handwriting sessions on a recurring basis; to create a physical and psychological space that explores the practice of concentrated writing as an art form, and a process designed to bring people together in a quiet and calming way, all by focusing on human rights.”

This summer, Morris-Jumel Mansion will be hosting the first online version of the Handwriting Project, collaborating with the Old Stone House and other Historic House Trust sites in New York City, as well as a community of artists in Europe. We will meet every Thursday from noon to 2:00 p.m. EDT beginning on August 13 and ending on September 17, with a special session on Wednesday, August 26 to observe the Centennial of Ratification of the 19th Amendment and women’s right to vote. Commit to spending time with the U. S. Constitution, The Universal Declaration of Human Rights, or choose another document.

Participation is casual and you can register to participate in one or more sessions. Members will have the opportunity to share their documents.
