Celebrate the remarkable creative legacy of the Village Voice (1955-2018), the downtown newsweekly that "gave New York its cool."

At once a feisty upstart neighborhood newspaper that challenged local politics and a self-appointed chronicler of downtown arts and culture, the Voice helped define the free-wheeling spirit of Greenwich Village in the 1950s and '60s and nurtured generations of outstanding American journalists, critics, cartoonists, and photographers. Inspired by the Museum’s exhibition The Voice of the Village: Fred W. McDarrah Photographs and to mark the one year anniversary of the paper's closing, this afternoon-into-evening festival will feature conversations with distinguished former Voice writers, editors, and photographers, and will culminate in a coffeehouse-style concert with legendary musician and raconteur David Amram

Accessibility: Assistive listening devices are available and our auditorium wheelchair lift can accommodate manual and motorized wheelchairs (max. capacity 500 lbs). Please contact the Museum at 917.492.3333 or with any questions.
