James and Karla Murray, "Capturing the Faces and Voices of Mom-and-Pop Storefronts"
Time Out says
New York City's streetscape sure is changing— all starting with the staggering amount of vacant storefronts dotting the city that were once mom-and-pop shops. To support community activism around preserving the memory of countless shuttered shops, head to the opening exhibition of “Capturing the Faces and Voices of Mom-and-Pop Storefronts” and see photographs of iconic mom-and-pop shops around New York City—like CBGB and Stage Delicatessen— and the personal interviews of their owners. Acclaimed photographers James and Karla Murray who shot Time Out NY’s Mom and Pop Issue this spring, are behind the exhibition’s concept, with photographs captured by participants of their free public photography workshops. During the opening, from 6pm to 8:30pm tonight, expect free goodies like beer from Singha, cold brew from Joe Coffee Company and pastries from Veniero's Pasticceria. The exhibition will be on display every day from 10 am to 10 pm until October 27.
