A new crowd-sourced exhibit at the Museum of the City of New York, New York Responds: The First Six Months, takes a look back on 2020 and how New York City has handled all of the challenges brought by the past year. Tens of thousands of photographs, videos, and other works of art were submitted to the museum by New Yorkers across the five boroughs. Submissions were whittled down by a jury of twelve diverse New Yorkers who helped museum curators pick which pieces to include in the exhibit.
The perspectives of more than 100 New Yorkers are represented in the works on display in the exhibition. New York Responds: The First Six Months will be on view through April 11th, 2021. You can buy timed tickets for entry on the museum’s website.
