"Securing the Shadow" and "the epitaph project" at the American Folk Art Museum
The Children of Nathan Starr, Ambrose Andrews (1801-1877)

Both meditating on loss and posthumous expressions, two new and engaging exhibits are now on view at the American Folk Art Museum through Sunday, February 26. 

" Securing the Shadow: Posthumous Portraiture in America" is a contemplation of American self-taught portraiture through the lens of memory and loss. The exhibition examines ways in which American culture has understood death and remembrance from the colonial period through the 19th century. More than 120 works of art, including gravestone photos and monuments, painted portraits, death casts, and postmortem daguerreotypes will be on view

Also on view is " the epitaph project" which began in 1995 on a burial plot in Hollywood Forever, a historic cemetery in Los Angeles. The ongoing project comprises a traditional tombstone carved from slate, finished as a chalkboard, and accompanied by a bronze chalk box for the use of visitors. It exists in other iterations including cemeteries, exhibitions, parks, and publications.

The American Folk Art Museum is located at 2 Lincoln Square, on Columbus Avenue between 65th and 66th Streets. Admission is free. See all of the museum's upcoming events at folkartmuseum.org.
NYPD Crime Prevention Division: CCTV Systems
According to the New York City Police Department (NYPD) one of the best ways you can assist the NYPD is to install a camera surveillance system for your business or residence. Having access to footage from these cameras can help prevent crime and fight terrorism. Systems are surprisingly affordable and easily self-installed.
 
For more information, contact the NYPD Crime Prevention Division at 212.614.6741. And visit nyc.gov/nypd for more crime prevention tips from the NYPD's Community Affairs Bureau.
