the people's poster project
The People’s Poster Project was co-commissioned and presented as part of Paths to Pier 42, a project of Good Old Lower East Side, Hester Street Collaborative, Lower East Side Ecology Center, Lower Manhattan Cultural Council, and Two Bridges Neighborhood Council, in close partnership with the Lower East Side Waterfront Alliance, NY State Senator Daniel Squadron, and the NYC Department of Parks & Recreation. The People's Poster Project was developed during an LMCC Process Space residency in June-September, 2014.
Working with a range of community groups, from youth to elders, I facilitated large format photographic portraits, inviting LES/Two Bridges residents to pose with an object from their personal archive or in a significant place. The project culminated in a completed outdoor exhibition September 27 - November 30, 2014.
