The Photographer in the Garden

Since the invention of the medium, photographers have been drawn by the allure of flowers. This group exhibition excerpted from Aperture’s book The Photographer in the Garden celebrates the rich history of artists working in the garden as a site of inspiration and reinvention.

Presenting Artists
Sam Abell, Alice Austen, Mack Cohen, Stephen Gill, Lonnie Graham, Justine Kurland, Lori Nix, Bill Owens, Sheron Rupp, Collier Schorr, Mike Slack

9/11 Commemoration

At the beginning of 2021, cultural and preservation leaders met at the 9/11 Memorial Museum to discuss cultural institutions’ response to the 20th anniversary and plan performances to provide our community with spaces to gather and reflect on the power of the arts in NYC to heal. The Alice Austen House will join many other cultural institutions to light our building in blue on Saturday September 11 and be exhibiting vintage Landmarks Commission photographs of Staten Island firehouses from September 11 through December 30 in our contemporary sunroom gallery.
