Save The Village – Walking Tour
Event on 2016-07-05 10:00:00
SAVE THE VILLAGE The original tour featuring the photos of Fred W. McDarrah. Based on a blockbuster photo exhibit of the same name that was on display at the Steven Kasher Gallery in Chelsea in 2014. So many individuals and groups came to the show, and there was such a positive media reaction to the exhibition and gallery workers were peppered on a daily basis with so many questions about the photos and the changing face of Greenwich Village….  The exhibition ended, but the interest in Greenwich Village in the 1960s and McDarrah's documentation of the changing scene did not wane one iota. So the Estate of Fred W. McDarrah decided to bring the people not to the gallery, but to the scenes that made the show such a success: the Greenwich Village locales documented by McDarrah during his tenure at the Village Voice – such as Washington Square Park; the Stonewall Inn, the birthplace of the modern day gay rights movement; and the various stomping grounds of the individuals he photographed that helped shape the 1960s ethos, including Bob Dylan, Andy Warhol and Jimi Hendrix.   TOUR GROUP LEAVES FROM CHRISTOPHER PARK AT the STONEWALL PL.
