As part of Archtober, this panel discussion explores the unique challenges faced by cultural institutions that are also historic sites. How do you interact with the public and let them explore your site, while simultaneously dealing with the responsibility of historic preservation? Join the South Street Seaport Museum’s Director of Collections, Martina Caruso, the Tenement Museum’s Collections Manager, Danielle Swanson, and Director of Curatorial Affairs, David Favaloro, Cathedral of Saint John the Divine’s Director of Production, Jonathan Secor, Museum of Eldridge Street's Director of Public Engagement, Chelsea Dowell, and Columbia University’s Adjunct Associate Professor in Historic Preservation, Mary Jablonski, in a fascinating discussion from various perspectives of how to balance between the needs of public engagement and preserving a site for future generations. Please go to the Melville Gallery at 213 Water Street. Doors open at 6:15 PM. Tickets are $25. Members of the Seaport Museum, Tenement Museum, and Museum of Eldridge Street, and students in architecture or historic preservation, $10.
