Join NYC Parks for the opening of James and Karla Murray's public art installation Mom-and-Pops of the L.E.S.

Karla and James Murray’s wood-framed sculpture consists of near life-size photographs of four mom-and-pop neighborhood stores of the Lower East Side, which are no longer in business and have disappeared from the streetscape. Images of a bodega, a coffee shop/luncheonette, a vintage store, and a newsstand recognize the unique and irreplaceable contribution made to New York by small, often family-owned businesses.

This exhibition was made possible by the Art in the Parks: UNIQLO Park Expressions Grant.

This event is free and open to the public.
