When: Jul 29, 2021 from 14:00 to 15:00 (ET)This event is a conversation about several diverse special art collections housed in NYC, and the spectrum of accessibility to these collections. Equally this gathering will explore how these collections tell the stories of the artists past the collections preserve and how these materials connect to future works. The discussion will explore how existing systems, or those being developed, or yet to be introduced systems in these organizations would make the collections both accessible and centered in the ideals of the social and artist movements they collect/represent.Next week...SLA NY & SLA DICE The Biggest Obstacle - screening of a documentary about transportation accessibility in NYC
