A place of creation. A melting pot. Since the days the neighborhood hummed with the sound of printing presses, the Seaport has been a center of culture. Seaport Arts carries that torch into new territory with its support of emerging and diverse talent. A robust roster of exhibitions and installations. A warm, inclusive community for all. Unique settings to showcase one-of-a-kind experiences. Art on the pier. Art on the cobblestones. Art in historic storefronts. Come and discover something new.
Inclusion. Impact. Image-makers. SEEN is the newest show at the SN37 Gallery featuring work from 20 artists in this season’s Creator Labs cohort – all photographed on Google Pixel. Creator Labs is a visual arts incubator founded by SN37 and Google to support photographers and directors, and is in its sixth season.
Light. Color. Architecture. Experience it all at the two newest installations on Pier 17, two colorful acrylic and steel houses by Brooklyn-based artist Tom Fruin. These houses are a part of the ICON series, a collection of public art works designed to make viewers reimagine the buildings and structures around them in a new way.
This South Street Seaport Museum exhibition for children aged 2–7 is a world of wonder brought to life. Huge murals take visitors into the world of Carle’s illustrated books, and kids can enjoy activities like meeting a live hermit crab and learning about cargo ships.
A bustling port. A growing city. See how New York’s natural harbor and the development of the Seaport helped NYC become the nation’s leading city. Two new exhibitions at the South Street Seaport Museum take you inside the fascinating history.
Fine art. Fashion. Family. And everything in between. It’s all on display at American Black Beauty Vol. 1, the second exhibition at the SN37 Gallery, by photographer & filmmaker Micaiah Carter. The photography features Black men and women, drawing attention to the void in representation on both sides of the camera.
Movement. Life. Unbridled exuberance. It was all on display at Go Home, the inaugural SN37 exhibition by photographer & filmmaker Tyrell Hampton. A primarily black and white selection of images of partygoers evokes a fantastical world of the choreography of moving through a dark club.
Street style. Everyday people. Famous New Yorkers. No one captured the city quite like Bill Cunningham. Explore the journey through the legendary photographer’s work—and into the cultural fabric of the city.
The Seaport’s gallery walk, the Magic HOUR, was named for the “dusk” New York City found itself in during the first year of the COVID-19 pandemic.
