Yonkers Fire Department: A Historical Exhibition
US+U is please to announce our partnership for this important community event!
Photographs and Memorabilia on Display at Downtown Yonkers’s Urban Studio Unbound Gallery, June 10-24
Urban Studio Unbound, committed to nourishing professional development through collaboration, will host Yonkers Fire Department: A Historical Exhibition, at their downtown gallery space, June 10-24. The first iteration of this exhibition will showcase more than a century of department history from the front lines through dynamic photography, memorabilia, and fire related artifacts.
“There is a history here of over 120 years,” recounts a spokesperson for the project. “Not only is this project about education, celebration, and to honor our fallen brothers, it serves as an inclusive archive that is vital to our legacy as a department. It is about giving these artifacts a home where they can be preserved and maintained for the next 120 years, and for generations to come to continue to appreciate and recognize where we all came from.”
Images from prominent fire photographers will be included in the exhibition, along with donated and on-loan relics from the expansive Yonkers Fire Department family and beyond.
Yonkers Fire Department: A Historical Exhibition will be on view on select days from Saturday, June 10 through Saturday, June 24.
There will be an opening reception on June 10 from 6:00 p.m.- 9:00 p.m. and is open to the public.
Urban Studio Unbound is located at 66 Main Street, #B in downtown Yonkers, (914) 613-4302.
Admission is free for all ages.
