Add to Calendar 17-02-2012 10-06-2012 15 Harlem 1970-2009, A Study in Transitions by Camilo Jose Vergara This exhibition of photographs by Camilo Jose Vergara will be shown in two cycles: Harlem: The People and Harlem: The Place. Vergara's images serve as powerful and poignant witness to the changes that have occurred over the past four decades in one of the most famous neighborhoods of New York City. Known as the capital of black America, Harlem is a place that has been home to many in the civil rights movement. However, this dynamic part of the city north of Central Park is defined by not only its residents, but also by the physical environment; buildings, which, viewed repeatedly over time, have an organic quality of their own. The first installation (February 17 - June 10, 2012) is defined by the personalities and people of Harlem and the second cycle will focus upon the bricks and mortar; those buildings that tell their own stories. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=104357 New-York Historical Society true DD/MM/YYYY
