New-York Historical Society- Out of Many, One: American Civics and Citizenship

July 7, 2018 –  September 30
Saturdays, Sundays
Nolan Park

Founded in 1804 as the first museum in New York City, the New-York Historical Society has moved forward into the 21st century, offering to visitors on-site and online a vast collection of art, objects, artifacts and documents and an ongoing collecting program that aims to facilitate a broad grasp of history’s enduring importance and its usefulness in finding explanations, causes, and insights.

This summer, explore what it means to be American at the New-York Historical Society’s sixth annual teen-curated satellite exhibition on historic Governors Island. Showcasing reproductions of works of art and historic artifacts, galleries present the history of citizenship through the rights and responsibilities that have united Americans from disparate backgrounds across generations. Learn the importance of civic engagement—from grassroots strategies to the passing of Constitutional amendments—by considering the struggles Americans face to fully realize their rights.

This exhibition is curated and staffed by specially trained Teen Leader high school interns. Family friendly programs are offered every weekend at Building 18 in Nolan Park. Out of Many, One: American Civics and Citizenship is open to the public and free of charge for all.
