Exhibition celebrating the 175th anniversary
of Green-Wood Cemetery at the Cooper Union. Showcasing a selection of philanthropists who
are interred at GWC—an effort to further the philosophical notion of altruism.
What does it mean to have a legacy?
Providing access, as a philosophical objective, is the agent that binds this exhibition with Peter Coopers mission for the college, as well as the philanthropists interred in GWC's mausoleums. Through creative research, an assortment of artifacts and realized projects help represent each individual. The exhibition functions as a showcase, providing a closer look into the history and physical representation of each philanthropist's designated space at the Green–Wood Cemetery.
