Who Takes Care of New York? is an exploration of the variety of civic groups that exist and thrive in New York City, and the ways that they care for and support their local environments. Displayed through maps, art, and storytelling, this exhibition aims to empower visitors with an understanding of their capacity to make lasting changes in their neighborhoods.
We welcome you to join us on Thursday, September 12th, from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m., for the opening night reception of Who Takes Care of New York? at the Queens Museum to celebrate the scientists, artists, stewardship groups, and community partners which have made this exhibit possible. Light refreshments will be served.
The exhibition runs from September 12 - 29, 2019. For more information, as well as our full list of programming and events, visit the Who Takes Care of New York? homepage.
