On Thursday, December 10, 6:30 pm DART Partners with the Arts at Museum of the City of New York to present Legacy: The Preservation of Wilderness in New York City Parks with photographer Joel Meyerowitz and author Phillip Lopate
From the announcement:
Join photographer Joel Meyerowitz and author Phillip Lopate, collaborators on Legacy: The Preservation of Wilderness in New York City Parks ( Aperture, 2009), for a discussion of the hidden pockets of wilderness that still exist within the city.
Legacy is part of a larger project that was initiated in 2006, when Meyerowitz was asked by Parks Commissioner Adrian Benepe to document, interpret, and celebrate one of the city’s greatest legacies: nearly nine thousand acres of parks in the five boroughs that still exist close to their original pristine state, as well as areas within parks that have been left to revert to wilderness. When completed, the project will constitute the first extended visual record of New York’s parks since the 1930s. Presented in conjunction with the exhibition, Legacy: The Preservation of Wilderness in New York City Parks, currently on view at Museum of the City of New York.
