NYIT Presents SECURITY BLANKETS: Honoring Colleagues at Gallery 61 January 20 - February 17, 2011

Security Blankets

New York, N.Y. (Jan. 5, 2011) - NYIT Gallery 61 is pleased to present the exhibition,

"SECURITY BLANKETS: Honoring Colleagues"

We interviewed 10 security guards and asked them to select their favorite quilt from the previous show “Outspoken Quilts, by Katherine Knauer”. We then continued the conversation about their lives and cultural interests.

The first people you meet when you walk into the lobby of the NYIT Manhattan campus are the security guards – men and women. They are a constant, helpful presence, once we pass their fixed posts; we turn our minds to work. Our encounters are brief and we rarely consider that the security people know us better than we know them. The colleagues interviewed are: Koren Burrell, Freda Darlington, Sabrina Eldridge, Rajkumarie Kaikai, David Lisy, William Joseph, Melvin Mitchell, Alan O’Sullivan, Margaret Patrick, and Edna Thompson.

Photographs taken by Natasha Jahangir; Interviews edited by Ellinor R. Mitchell.

The exhibition will be on view January 20 through February 18, 2011 at NYIT Gallery 61.

Exhibition Catalog to be published this Spring 2011.

 

The NYIT Gallery 61 is located on the 11th floor of NYIT’s New Technology Building, 16 W. 61st St. Interactive tours are available by appointment. For more information, please e-mail Jennifer Mitchell at jmitchell@nyit.edu or call 212.261.1562.
