Village Preservation’s acclaimed interactive public outdoor art exhibition Village Voices 2022 ends Sunday, so be sure to check it out or revisit your favorites while you still can.

Village Voices includes more than two dozen site-specific installations across Greenwich Village, the East Village, and NoHo, illuminating important people and events connected to those sites. See the carefully crafted shadowboxes with artifacts, photos, and artistic interpretations, and listen to the audio accessible by scannable QR code or on our website with prominent locals offering engaging insights. Historic figures honored include James Baldwin, Patti Smith, Maurice Sendak, and Leontyne Price, among many others, and narrations come from neighbors such as Rachel Maddow, John Leguizamo, and Edward Norton.

Village Voices is free and open to the public, to share the knowledge and joy of the great innovators and history of our neighborhoods. It’s also Village Preservation’s annual benefit fundraiser.
