Sunday, October 23, 2022

1:00 p.m.3:00 p.m.

This event repeats every day between 10/23/2022 and 1/31/2023.

A new mosaic exhibit by multimedia artist Kristi Pfister premiers at the historic Rutan-Becket House gallery as part of the 2022 Open House New York weekend at Conference House Park.

Dorothy Day: Iconic Activist is an exhibit of mosaics about Dorothy Day. She is a global icon for social justice, and a local icon of Staten Island where she lived in a beach bungalow on the water’s edge. In Pfister’s creations, she combines imagery associated with Day and fuses them with motifs that are part of the inherited vocabulary of mosaic design. The mosaics interlace patterned symbols with quiet undulating space. They explore Day’s duality of what is “seen" - her lifetime of radical actions with what is “unseen” - her spiritual self.

The exhibit will be on display, by appointment only (contact through January 2023.There will be an opening reception on Sunday, October 23 from 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm (in conjunction with an exhibition at nearby H.H. Biddle House).
