Through touring major museums in New York City, and experiencing the beautiful artwork the city has to offer, our group, comprised of Black and Jewish students was inspired by the artwork which represented our cultures and heritage. Our project features the arts of Black and Jewish creators in New York City, as well as the art of up and coming Black and Jewish artists.

As we visited museums and collaborated on various projects, one theme recurred: the different cultures in New York City. Every group member was able to connect their own heritage to what we saw around the city.
Despite culture’s ubiquitous presence around us, we often underestimate the power of art, music, performance, and physical infrastructure in dividing or connecting us as people.
