Bay Ridge Historical Society April 2021 Meeting
We are pleased to have Victoria Monro, Executive Director of the Alice Austen House, join us for our April Meeting. Alice Austen House is a museum located in Staten Island that represents the work of the renowned photographer, Alice Austen. Alice Austen (1866 - 1952) captured a changing New York City in more than 7,000 photographs taken mostly around the turn of the twentieth century. Austen documented her life on Staten Island and went onto the streets of Manhattan to photograph the activities of immigrants and the working class. She was versatile and forged her own path beyond the restrictive Victorian expectations for women. Victoria Munro is an Artist, Art and Art History Educator and Curator and this looks to be a very interesting meeting.
