BORDERS PHOTO EXHIBIT HIGHLIGHTS POLISH INFORMATION BOOTHS at the 13th Annual
Sunday, September 16, 2007
79th to 94th at Lexington Ave, New York, NY
Hours: 11:00 AM-5:30 PM
The Polish presentations at this year's popular 92nd Street Y STREET FESTIVAL are featuring an exhibit of the high-spirited photographs of Piotr Sikora and Piotr Bondarczyk, émigré Poles from Krakow who were inspired by New York's ethnic diversity to launch their BORDERS/GRANICE photo project. The Polish booths include those of the:
- Jewish Culture Festival in Krakow
- Museum of the History of Polish Jews in Warsaw
- Consulate General of the Republic of Poland, Polish National Tourist Office, and the Polish Cultural Institute in New York
The annual 92nd Street Y Street Festival is one of the City's most popular family fairs, from its music, dance and spoken-word performances to "International Way" - a cultural exhibition featuring more than a dozen countries. At the Polish booths you can learn about Krakow's tremendously vigorous and increasingly popular Jewish Culture Festival, and Warsaw's landmark interactive Museum of the History of Polish Jews, which is about to be built and will celebrate eight centuries of Jewish life and culture in Poland. A third booth will offer information on many of the startling landmarks of Poland's landscape and history, and many new travel opportunities, as well as its cultural legacy and thriving contemporary art world, the fruits of which can often be seen in the U.S. The Y's Street Festival also offers children's activities, arts and crafts, food and fun, and a raffle with more than 100 prizes.
