In Defense of the Human Spirit (Outdoor Exhibition)
Through October 30th
Nolan Park, Governors Island near Building 10B
In Defense of the Human Spirit is an imaginative reaction to the fortresses that were built on Governors Island in the early 1800s to protect New York’s harbor from any foreign invasion. Each piece int this exhibition, thoughtfully curated by Savona Bailey-McClain of the West Harlem Art Fund and Christina Goldberg of Studio 80 + Sculpture Grounds, conveys movement, a twisting and bending of the strongest of materials, inward and out, stretching towards and facing a city that is continually evolving. The panoramic view from Governors Island facing the ever-changing skyline of New York is a reminder that in the face of adversity, there is nothing more resilient than the human spirit.

Meet Metalsmith Artist & Jewelry Designer Ayala Naphtali

Jewelry designer Ayala Naphtali draws inspiration from ancient alphanumeric systems, contemporary architecture and her own personal, cultural history. She is intrigued with balance and proportion and feels that each of her pieces must find its axis on the wearer. She creates work with elegance and minimal, bold forms, precious metals and alternative materials.
October 1st & 2nd, 2022 12pm – 4 pm
Meet Photographer Gregory Harris
Gregory Harris is a Toledo-born artist based in Brooklyn since completing studies at Bowling Green State University where he focused on cinema studies & fine art photography. This study of the image, image-making, and their relationship with day-to-day society, has informed a decade-long practice of photography and filmmaking.
More recent work has featured artists and their workspaces, with an intent to champion space and process as related to artistic practice. Gregory understands the power of the image and intends to create work that is directly engaged, in service to the communities and audience of the subject, all the while respecting the importance of place as character.
