Bard Graduate Center invites you to join them weekly for a virtual journey through the more than 50 exhibitions the Gallery has organized since 1993. These tours will feature an array of stories about people, places, and things from around the world. This week the journey begins close to 86th Street with “Visualizing 19th-Century New York,” a Focus Project exhibition about the unprecedented technical, economic, and cultural creations that emerged on and around Broadway, the longest street in New York City. “Visualizing 19th-Century New York” examined New York City—a spectacle for resident and visitor alike—through prints and photographs produced by cultural entrepreneurs who created a vast commercial market for their images of the booming metropolis.
