For this unique show, a collection of photographs by Parks Commissioner Mitchell J. Silver, FAICP and his late father Irwin Silver are displayed side by side. The exhibited photos show a deeply personal connection between a father and his son. A photographer, Irwin’s works are stirring black and white slices of Americana: 1950s New York City life. Mitchell’s background as an urban planner honed his eye for natural beauty and shared public spaces. His photographs depict the contrast of hard and soft landscapes across the city, especially in parks.

This exhibition is open Mondays-Fridays through November 30.
