  1. The art within public housing in its exterior and some interior spaces too are a true treasure and legacy. Hopefully, each representation can be preserved, restored and saved. The art began at the very outset of public housing in the 1930’s To do this will require funding. Government funding is always a challenge to obtain but not impossible. Unfortunately, it’s not consistent.

    In my opinion, NYCHA, City of New York should help form a non-profit in the same model of a conservancy like the Central Park or Battery Park Conservancy.

    Private donors, foundations, organizations and individuals can be sources of revenue to get the non-profit going and sustained. Also major arts institutions should contribute in the spirit of being socially responsible. That could take the form of providing restoration, research and archival services in addition to or in lieu of funding.

    Save the art in public housing.
