Who Takes Care of New York? is an exploration of the variety of civic groups that exist and thrive in New York City, and the ways that they care for and support their local environments. Displayed through maps, art, and storytelling, this exhibition aims to empower visitors with an understanding of their capacity to make lasting changes in their neighborhoods.
This exhibition is organized by the USDA Forest Service’s New York City Urban Field Station (NYC UFS) and Pratt Institute’s Spatial Analysis and Visualization Initiative (SAVI). The exhibition will also feature artists whose work aligns with the themes of community-based stewardship, civic engagement, and social infrastructure, including artists Magali Duzant and Jodie Lyn-Kee-Chow, as well as two NYC UFS Artists-in-Residence, Matthew Jensen and Julia Oldham.
