Museum of the City of New York, Inc. (New York, NY 10029-5287)
Sarah M. Henry (Project Director: May 2020 to present)
New York Responds - Online and Onsite Collecting and Interpretation of NYC during and after COVID

A multi-part series of programs that includes documentation and collections activities focused on experiences of New Yorkers during the COVID-19 crisis.

As New York City remains the current epicenter of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Museum of the City of New York is committed to documenting this moment for future generations, connecting with our audiences in new ways, and revisiting our interpretation of the metropolis. New York Responds: Beyond COVID will mobilize the spirit of the humanities by providing historical context, opening dialogues, and encouraging creative thinking on the values and visions that will shape the city’s future to support the collective processing of this global crisis. The public will be invited to participate online and at the Museum’s outdoor spaces to reflect on their experiences and express their hopes for the future. These and other crowd-sourced artistic responses, testimonies, and media will ultimately inform a special installation, prioritizing the inclusion of diverse voices. The project will be further enhanced by online and possibly onsite public and educational programming for learners of all ages.
