The Museum at Eldridge Street is proud to present a new exhibition, On the Lower East Side: 28 Remarkable Women…and One Scoundrel. The exhibition features 29 different women who lived or worked on the Lower East Side of New York at the turn of the twentieth century. Their mixed media portraits by artist Adrienne Ottenberg incorporate maps of the Lower East Side neighborhood and are printed on silk or cotton banners that will be hung throughout the Museum’s gallery and historic sanctuary. Stories about the women highlight the work, life, and impact they made culturally, on social justice movements, and more. The exhibition will be on view December 3, 2023 through May 5, 2024.

Panel Discussion during Women’s History Month to take place on March 3rd.
