The Preservation League’s Seven to Save program has been drawing statewide attention to New York’s most important and at-risk historic places since 1999. Hidden in Plain Sight began in 2017 as a way to further that mission.
The exhibition contains beautiful black and white photos by Bruce Harvey of this year’s Seven to Save designees. It uses art as yet another way to rally advocates to the sites that tell unique stories of New York's communities.
Through Seven to Save, the League has worked with local stakeholders to avert demolition, develop plans for reuse, secure landmark designation, and foster greater public awareness of the value of New York’s unique and irreplaceable historic resources. Threats to dozens of at-risk buildings, landscapes, downtowns, and neighborhoods have been reduced, and in many cases, eliminated by the Seven to Save designation and subsequent actions.
Opening Reception: October 4, 6:00-7:30 p.m.
