Various Artists, Photoville NYC 2020

September 17, 2020 to March 30, 2021
Various Locations

Please note: This is a past exhibit that is no longer installed in the park.

Now in its ninth year, Photoville NYC2020 expands the beloved festival, for the first time ever, to all five boroughs, offering increased access to art and storytelling as so many facets of society remain on pause, and as New York’s open public spaces provide vital, safe ways of being out in the world amidst the COVID-19 pandemic. With Photoville’s focus on the power of visual storytelling, many exhibitions respond to and candidly capture realities both intimate and global from this historic, harrowing year.

In addition to the public displays, Photoville has also put together an abundant calendar of virtual events surrounding the festival, including artist talks, workshops, demonstrations, educational programs, storytelling events, and community programming.

Locations: Exhibitions in parks can be found in Soundview Park and Van Cortlandt Park in the Bronx; Anchorage Plaza in Brooklyn; Chelsea Park, Jackie Robinson Park, and St. Nicholas Park in Manhattan; Astoria Park and Travers Park in Queens; and South Beach Promenade in Staten Island.
