SoHo historian Yukie Ohta will present the SoHo Memory Project Portable Historical Society, a mobile museum featuring the sights, sounds, and smells of SoHo in the 1970s through such unconventional media as Viewmaster viewers, 3-D printed miniatures, and a smell station.
Public sessions with the SoHo Memory Project will take place in The Drawing Center foyer giving visitors an opportunity to learn about the history of SoHo as a New York City neighborhood.
In partnership with the SoHo Arts Network, the program will travel to sites throughout SoHo through July 2016. Further information and the full calendar of public sessions is available here.
This program is supported by a grant from the New York Council for the Humanities.
