Our Neighborhood Rolls Community Mural

Open to the public Reher Center Courtyard, near 3 Spring Street

In August 2020, visiting Artist Julia Vogl worked with the students of the Rondout Neighborhood Center's Read and Write program to articulate questions to ask the broader Kingston community that represent our diversity, what we share, and what we value. Using stencils and a color scheme designed by Vogl, community members spray painted answers from 148 respondents to the students' questions.

Coming Soon - Sewing in Kingston: Home, Factory, and Tradition

"Sewing in Kingston: Home, Factory, and Tradition" is an exhibition and public program series at the Reher Center that explores how Kingstonians from many backgrounds have used sewing as a source of income, an expression of creativity, and a vehicle for cultural transmission. Between May and November 2020, we will amplify the voices and perspectives of individual participants in Kingston’s garment industry past and present, highlighting the role of immigrants and women and tying Kingstonians’ experiences of sewing to broader historical, cultural, and economic trajectories in Kingston and the country at large.
