Become a member to attend the preview of Vulnerable Landscapes.

Vulnerable Landscapes depicts an island at risk in the heart of the Nation’s largest city. This interdisciplinary exhibition centers the shorelines at the forefront of climate change in one of New York City’s most vulnerable landscapes: Staten Island. Together, new works of contemporary art, scientific endeavors aimed at resiliency efforts, and art and archival materials from the museum’s collection examine the shared space between the built and natural environment and highlight local individuals advocating for climate justice and a deeper connection to where we live.
