The Conservatory Garden, a six-acre site in Central Park, is beautiful at any time of year. But in the month of May it comes to life with Cherry Blossoms and tulips. Below are some photos showing some of the enormous volunteer effort it takes to create this garden.

The installation, State of Exception/Estado de Excepcion currently on view at The Parsons School of Design, brings to life the difficult journey undocumented migrants face in their quest for freedom. This complex topic has been part of an ongoing study at The Institute for the Humanities at the University of Michigan, where researchers have collected clothing, photographs, videos and interviews in an effort to remove the migrants from our nightly news segments, and bring each one of them into our lives, by way of personal artifacts and bits of clothing left behind.
