Join us for a free curator-led tour for educators of two new exhibitions, The Voice of the Village: Fred W. McDarrah Photographs, and the companion exhibition, PRIDE: Photographs of Stonewall and Beyond by Fred W. McDarrah.

The Voice of the Village: Fred W. McDarrah Photographs examines New York City from the tumultuous 1960s to the dawn of the 1970s through the lens of photographer Fred W. McDarrah. A curious, knowledgeable, and indefatigable visual chronicler, McDarrah created an encyclopedic archive of culture and politics for the alternative newsweekly The Village Voice; from the Beats of the 1950s to the counterculture of the ’60s to the Stonewall uprising and major political events of the early 1970s. The exhibition features images of cultural icons such as Allen Ginsberg and Bob Dylan, with a particular focus on the agitation for civil rights and anti–Vietnam War demonstrations.

As part of the national celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall uprising, the Museum of the City of New York presents PRIDE: Photographs of Stonewall and Beyond by Fred W. McDarrah, featuring Fred W. McDarrah’s images of the initial Stonewall uprising, portraits of significant figures in the LGBTQ rights movement, and photographs of pride marches, protests, and public events for the LGBTQ community. PRIDE is a companion exhibition to The Voice of the Village: Fred W. McDarrah Photographs and a critical component of the Museum’s Stonewall50 series of exhibitions and programming PRIDE = POWER!

Open to educators and guests, this program provides 1.5 CTLE hours for eligble participants.

 

The Voice of the Village: Fred W. McDarrah Photographs is made possible with lead support by the Edwin Barbey Charitable, with additional support provided by John and Patricia Heller.

PRIDE: Photographs of Stonewall and Beyond by Fred W. McDarrah is made possible in part by Jeffrey A. Schoenfeld; Rosita Sarnoff and Beth Sapery; and the LGBTQ+ Museum.

The Frederick A.O. Schwarz Education Center is endowed by grants from The Thompson Family Foundation Fund, the F.A.O. Schwarz Family Foundation, the William Randolph Hearst Endowment, and other generous donors.
