The return of Village Voices

Photos by Steven

The 2022 edition of Village Voices, an installation of 24 public art exhibits that honor downtown trailblazers and their legacies, is up now around the East Village, Greenwich Village and Noho. 

You can find several boxes on the fence along St Mark's Church in-the-Bowery on Second Avenue between 10th Street and 11th Street...featuring photographer-cinematographer Helen Levitt...
... abstract-impressionist painter Joan Mitchell ...
... and jazz great Charlie Parker...

Each box has a QR code that you can scan to hear more about the individuals. (As NY1 pointed out, Jesse Eisenberg and Edward Norton are among the narrators.) 

Once again, Village Preservation is behind this new work... you can read more about the exhibit, up through Oct. 30, right here. Find a map with all the locations via this link.
