I’ve got a couple of photography projects at the Morris-Jumel Mansion that begin this Saturday, March 24 from 2-4pm.
I will give a talk called “The Art of Community” from 2-4pm that is my first attempt to try to weave together my interests in photography, anthropology, Northern Manhattan, and the Morris-Jumel Mansion, the oldest house in Manhattan.
It will include the initial photographs from a four-part series I have been working on about Northern Manhattan, including the first public showing of the portraits from the “Message Delayed” project.
The Mansion is also hosting a stripped-down version of “Northern Manhattan as Muse,” my portraits of local artists who use Washington Heights and Inwood for inspiration. The exhibit will be up for a couple of months.
My talk on “The Art of Community” is Saturday, March 24 from 2-4pm at the Morris-Jumel Mansion, 65 Jumel Terrace. Please call for reservations: 212-923-8008. Cost is $5, free for members of the Mansion.
The closest train is the C at 163rd Street.
