An exhibition to celebrate the the philosophical notion of altruism and the 175th anniversary of Green-Wood Cemetery at the Cooper Union. Showcasing a selection of philanthropists interred at Green-Wood Cemetery, Do Good Green-Wood provides a closer look into the history and physical representation of each philanthropist's designated space at the Green-Wood Cemetery. Providing access, as a philosophical objective, is the agent that binds this exhibition with Peter Cooper's mission for the college, as well as the philanthropists interred in Green-Wood Cemetery's mausoleums. Creative research and an assortment of artifacts and realized projects help represent each individual and question, what it means to leave a legacy.
Exhibtion design by Troy Kreiner.
Located in the 41 Cooper Gallery, located in 41 Cooper Square, on Third Avenue between 6th and 7th Streets.
