6. Coming Full Circle, Visions and Practices of Resilience at the Bronx Aqueduct Walk
Through March 4, 2022, the public exhibition Coming Full Circle, Visions and Practices of Resilience by the Friends of the Old Croton Aqueduct and Community Heroes will be on view at West 183rd Street and Aqueduct Avenue in the Bronx. Coming Full Circle, Visions and Practices of Resilience highlights the history of the Aqueduct Walk, connecting its role in public health during the city’s cholera epidemic to the current community’s resilience during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The exhibition features family photos and memories collected from community members through email and in-person scanning events. Displayed alongside these photos are oral history interviews with longtime community members and historical photos of the area — collected in partnership with the Bronx Community College Archives. Curated by Jacqueline Johnson-Carmichael, support for the exhibition was also provided by Photoville and Partnerships for Parks.
