Bank Street BIA invites you to attend The Village Legacy Project Exhibition and Launch Party
 

Join Bank Street BIA for the launch party of our newest initiative, The Village Legacy Project

Tuesday, August 22 from 5 to 8 pm
Wallack Galleries, 225 Bank Street
Open bar featuring wine and non-alcoholic drinks


The exhibition runs from Tuesday, August 22 to Sunday, August 27 from noon to 8 pm

This Project looks at The Village on Bank, the history of the queer community over time, and the events that surrounded it. Drawing from a number of archival sources, including interviews with over 35 activists and leaders, The Village Legacy Project takes an insightful, poignant look at Bank Street's queer history, and includes an exciting interactive Web site and mobile app. 

You're invited to Wallack Galleries on Tuesday, August 22, where Bank Street BIA will be featuring an exhibition of archival photos, the first of our commemorative plaque series and a stroll down Bank Street to see a set of ten photos wrapped around power boxes in our new public art installation.

I look forward to seeing you at the launch.
