Portraits of My Community
Felipe Galindo “Feggo”
October 7, 2021 – January 3, 2022

The Morris-Jumel Mansion opens a new exhibition, Portraits of My Community by Washington Heights artist, Felipe Galindo (Feggo), featuring a selection of thirty mixed-media artworks portraying the people of Harlem, Washington Heights, and Inwood. The project celebrates the intertwining of cultures in Upper Manhattan neighborhoods, presenting a social commentary on the diversity, beauty, and resilience of longtime residents, newcomers, and immigrants. The artist re-purposes packaging materials ─ familiar objects we use and discard  ─  to reflect on environmental issues, while honoring the everyday life and joy in our communities.

This exhibition will be on view during the museum’s public hours Thursday to Sunday 11:00 – 5:00pm. Free admission is available by booking at this link.

Saturday, October 16th from 1:00 – 4:00pm – Community Open House

Saturday, November 6th from 1-2 pm (rain date of Sunday, November 7th) – Free community art workshop, “Using and Reusing: Giving an Artistic Life to Discarded Materials”

For event information, visit morrisjumel.org.

The exhibition Portraits of my Community is made possible in part with funding from the Upper Manhattan Empowerment Zone Development Corporation and administered by the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council.

The event is finished.
