Tent of Today is a part of a multi-faceted partnership to increase public awareness and historic appreciation of the New York State Pavilion, in Queens New York.
Tent of Today consists of a series of monthly public walking tours, film & theatrical presentations, and public exhibitions with project partners — to celebrate the NYS Pavilion and to highlight preservation efforts and plans to rehabilitate the structure. Additionally, plans for temporary installations and community events are ongoing, to encourage temporary access and highlight structural details within the Pavilion.
“New York’s Parks hold so many treasures, but sadly, many are off-limits. Buildings, monuments, even entire islands are owned by the Parks department, but closed to New Yorkers…but things are changing” (Moses Gates)
Tent of Today is a citizen initiative led by People for the Pavilion, NYS Pavilion Paint Project, and Aaron Asis — in collaboration with Untapped. Additional support has been provided by the National Trust for Historic Preservation, the Office of the Queens Borough President, and the New York City Department of Parks and Recreation.
