Joel Meyerowitz Hosts Special Tour in Central Park Sanctuary
On Friday, April 17, Aperture Foundation welcomed a group of trustees and patrons to a private tour of Central Park’s Hallett Sanctuary with master photographer Joel Meyerowitz. The tour offered a sneak peek of Legacy: The Preservation of Wilderness in New York, a Fall 2009 publication featuring more than 250 of Mr. Meyerowitz’s color photographs of the city’s Forever Wild Nature Preserves—pristine, pre-urban landscapes preserved by the Department of Parks & Recreation within the five boroughs. The publication will coincide with an exhibition originating at the Museum of the City of New York and then traveling to U.S. and international venues from 2009 to 2013. Guests brought their cameras and took shots of the wild sanctuary flora against the backdrop of midtown’s skyscrapers. The sunny trip ended with a lunch at Sarabeth’s Central Park South.
