New York City’s parks have a long history of playing host to public demonstrations and protests that dates to the American Revolution. Since then, people have taken to the city’s streets, plazas, and parks to voice their distress during numerous periods of unrest. Today, parks continue to be some of the most democratic spaces for people to gather and declare their calls to action. NYC Parks Ebony Society’s exhibition Power to the People shares artists’ interpretations of public demonstration, drawing on both the city’s rich history of protest and current social conflicts.

Artists included are Kathleen Celestin-Parks, Mira Gandy, Suprina, Burroughs Lamar, Myrna Marrero, Kirk Maynard, Marilyn Nance, Malcolm Pinckney, Victor Polanco, Mario Tavarez, and Steed Taylor, as well as historical images from the NYC Parks Photo Archive. Curated by NYC Parks’ Ebony Society.

The exhibition is free and open to the public. Closed on holidays.

New York City’s parks have a long history of playing host to public demonstrations and protests that dates to the American Revolution. Since then, people have taken to the city’s streets, plazas, and parks to voice their distress during numerous periods of unrest. Today, parks continue to be some of the most democratic spaces for people to gather and declare their calls to action. NYC Parks Ebony Society’s exhibition Power to the People shares artists’ interpretations of public demonstration, drawing on both the city’s rich history of protest and current social conflicts.

Artists included are Kathleen Celestin-Parks, Mira Gandy, Suprina, Burroughs Lamar, Myrna Marrero, Kirk Maynard, Marilyn Nance, Malcolm Pinckney, Victor Polanco, Mario Tavarez, and Steed Taylor, as well as historical images from the NYC Parks Photo Archive. Curated by NYC Parks’ Ebony Society.

The exhibition is free and open to the public. Closed on holidays.

New York City’s parks have a long history of playing host to public demonstrations and protests that dates to the American Revolution. Since then, people have taken to the city’s streets, plazas, and parks to voice their distress during numerous periods of unrest. Today, parks continue to be some of the most democratic spaces for people to gather and declare their calls to action. NYC Parks Ebony Society’s exhibition Power to the People shares artists’ interpretations of public demonstration, drawing on both the city’s rich history of protest and current social conflicts.

Artists included are Kathleen Celestin-Parks, Mira Gandy, Suprina, Burroughs Lamar, Myrna Marrero, Kirk Maynard, Marilyn Nance, Malcolm Pinckney, Victor Polanco, Mario Tavarez, and Steed Taylor, as well as historical images from the NYC Parks Photo Archive. Curated by NYC Parks’ Ebony Society.

The exhibition is free and open to the public. Closed on holidays.

New York City’s parks have a long history of playing host to public demonstrations and protests that dates to the American Revolution. Since then, people have taken to the city’s streets, plazas, and parks to voice their distress during numerous periods of unrest. Today, parks continue to be some of the most democratic spaces for people to gather and declare their calls to action. NYC Parks Ebony Society’s exhibition Power to the People shares artists’ interpretations of public demonstration, drawing on both the city’s rich history of protest and current social conflicts.

Artists included are Kathleen Celestin-Parks, Mira Gandy, Suprina, Burroughs Lamar, Myrna Marrero, Kirk Maynard, Marilyn Nance, Malcolm Pinckney, Victor Polanco, Mario Tavarez, and Steed Taylor, as well as historical images from the NYC Parks Photo Archive. Curated by NYC Parks’ Ebony Society.

The exhibition is free and open to the public. Closed on holidays.

New York City’s parks have a long history of playing host to public demonstrations and protests that dates to the American Revolution. Since then, people have taken to the city’s streets, plazas, and parks to voice their distress during numerous periods of unrest. Today, parks continue to be some of the most democratic spaces for people to gather and declare their calls to action. NYC Parks Ebony Society’s exhibition Power to the People shares artists’ interpretations of public demonstration, drawing on both the city’s rich history of protest and current social conflicts.

Artists included are Kathleen Celestin-Parks, Mira Gandy, Suprina, Burroughs Lamar, Myrna Marrero, Kirk Maynard, Marilyn Nance, Malcolm Pinckney, Victor Polanco, Mario Tavarez, and Steed Taylor, as well as historical images from the NYC Parks Photo Archive. Curated by NYC Parks’ Ebony Society.

The exhibition is free and open to the public. Closed on holidays.
