One way to visit the inside of the Manhattan Municipal Building is to check out the very under the radar art gallery located inside the Manhattan Borough President’s office. This month, there is an exhibit for Women’s History Month dedicated to women’s political history which includes photographs, posters and political campaign ephemera from women candidates and causes throughout the years.
Tonight from 6 to 8pm, there is a reception to mark the official dedication of this gallery as the Maggi Peyton Gallery, in honor of Maggi Peyton, whom Borough President Gale Brewer’s office describes as “a politico, feminist, and longtime aide (and curator of the gallery) to Manhattan Borough Presidents.” There will be speakers and refreshments and the event is free. The exhibit will also be on view Monday to Friday, from 8am to 6pm.
