Staten Island SEEN 1, Staten Island Museum at Snug Harbor, Amessé PhotographyJoin a family friendly curator led tour of the Museum’s inaugural art exhibition. Staten Island SEEN traces this borough’s unique history and changing landscape from the 17th century to the present. These works are made in a broad range of styles and materials, from ink drawing to anaglyph 3-D video. In the past, artists were attracted to Staten Island for its varied landscape: The shoreline, inland hills, ponds, valleys, waterways, and forests all provided inspiration. Contemporary artists depict these natural features as well as the way we live today, including parking lots, strip malls, tract houses, and other aspects of our suburban landscape. Walk-ins welcome.

Note: Event is free with museum admission.
