New York Historical Society
I documented, interviewed and photographed the New-York Historical Society's "NYC & the Civil War" exhibition on Governors Island, curated by their Student Historian Teen Leaders.
The exhibition portrayed a nuanced view of the Civil War using reproductions of photographs, newspapers, and works of art. They showed multiple perspectives and the complexities that arose in New York during the period of the American Civil War.
The New-York Historical Society, one of America’s pre-eminent cultural institutions, is dedicated to fostering research, presenting history and art exhibitions, and public programs that reveal the dynamism of history and its influence on the world of today. Founded in 1804, New-York Historical is the oldest museum in New York City whose mission is to explore the richly layered political, cultural and social history of New York City and State and the nation, and to serve as a national forum for the discussion of issues surrounding the making and meaning of history.
The Student Historian program is a comprehensive internship and youth development program that gives students vocational and academic training, public speaking and leadership skills, and an increased understanding of American art and history. Through object and inquiry-based learning, students broaden their academic perspective, increase their confidence in professional settings, and enhance their knowledge of fulfilling careers in the museum world.
