In the 1980s and ’90s, New York artists and women experiencing homelessness collaborated on an innovative public art project, and through it revealed the transformative potential of art in public and private life. Examine the history of modern homelessness in New York City and the response of artists and activists in the 1980s and ’90s with this special tour of Art for Change: The Artist & Homeless Collaborative led by the exhibition’s co-curators. 

Rebecca Klassen is associate curator of material culture at the New-York Historical Society. Laura Mogulescu is curator of women’s history collections at the New-York Historical Society’s Center for Women’s History.
