Join us all summer long at our 5th annual teen-curated satellite exhibition on historic Governors Island. This year, our Teen Leaders are celebrating the 100th anniversary of women gaining the right to vote in New York State in their exhibition, «Battle for the Ballot.»
Through reproductions of works of art and historic artifacts, visitors will learn how the women’s suffrage movement developed from the monumental Seneca Falls Convention in 1848 to the parades, protests, and coalition-building that won women the vote in 1917 and continues to influence political organizing today.
Free admission for all. Family friendly programming will be offered every weekend.
On view every Saturday and Sunday, 12 pm to 6 pm, between July 8–October 1, 2017.
Visit the exhibition at House 18 in Nolan Park on Governors Island. To get to Governors Island from Manhattan, catch the ferry from the Battery Maritime Building at 10 South Street. To get to Governors Island from Brooklyn, catch the ferry from Pier 6 at the Atlantic Avenue and Brooklyn Bridge Parkk Greenway.
