History Now Project – An Artist Talk with Rose Deler
Join us for a conversation with Washington Heights artist Rose Deler, as she shares her inspiration behind the creation of her current project History Now. In Deler’s words, this exhibition features “a community-based series of large-format, black and white film portraits depicting some of my neighbors as well as the architecture of one of New York’s most historic – and unexplored – neighborhoods, the Jumel Historic District of Washington Heights. They are displayed alongside photographs of the Ettinger family, fixtures of the community who lived on my block 120 years ago.”
Rose Deler’s History Now exhibition is on view at Morris-Jumel Mansion from January 13, 2022 through April 3, 2022.
Free with Eventbrite registration (suggested $5 donation). A Zoom link will be emailed after registering.
