June 9, 2013 at the Laundry Room on 116th Street

Across 116th Street is an interdisciplinary artistic exploration of a single street in Manhattan that runs the full width of the borough, from the Hudson River to the East River, considering the past, present and future of 116th Street as well as the communities, narratives, neighborhoods and histories it intersects. The project’s aim is to create a collective community-authored ar(t)chive of 116th Street.

August 18, 2013 at the Laundry Room

Throughout the summer of 2013, I facilitated free family portrait workshops on West 116th Street outside the Laundry Room as a teaching artist in the Laundromat Project's Works in Progress art education series, and on East 116th Street as a visiting artist at Getting Out and Staying Out Inc. In May and October I led river-to-river walks across the full width of 116th Street through the Municipal Arts Society's Jane's Walk NYC program. The project continues to grow. For a sampling of images from these walking conversations, please click HERE. Across 116th Street is made possible in part with public funds from the Manhattan Community Arts Fund, supported by the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council and administered by Lower Manhattan Cultural Council.
