Although the Lower Manhattan Sign Project was twenty-five years ago, the contemporary issues the signs commented on remain relevant today. Because REPOhistory's own website ( is no longer active, the Lower Manhattan Sign Project benefits from a digital exhibition such as this. Though the sign project was a temporary installation, this digital exhibition allows for the Lower Manhattan Sign Project to continue REPOhistory’s intentions of the project: to reveal absent or missing historical narratives, to comment on contemporary social issues, and to question standard historical representation.
