Waterfront Heroes (May to June 2019)
The Waterfront Heroes exhibit features 10 artist/activists working in the Bronx, Lower Manhattan, Brooklyn, Staten Island and Long Island who are working to preserve the waterfront in key ways. They include painter Naima Rauam who has devoted herself to painting the Fulton Fish Market, both its current incarnation in the Bronx and its glorious history at the Seaport; Rock the Boat which teaches boat building to underserved youth in the Bronx, Bayhouse owners from both the Rockaways and Long Island; and the Waterfront Museum in Brooklyn on a barge rescued and restored by David Sharps.
The gallery is open for viewing Fridays 2 – 6pm, Saturdays and Sundays 12 – 6pm, and by appointment. To schedule a visit outside of regular gallery hours, email Molly at email@example.com.
