The Life & Death of the Kingston Post Office
Public Exhibition at City Hall Open Through December 4th
KINGSTON, N.Y. - Mayor Steve Noble is pleased to host “The Life & Death of the Kingston Post Office”, a free public exhibition located on the ground floor of City Hall, through December 4th. The exhibition, which launched with an opening reception on October 12th, was curated by Stephen Blauweiss of Blauweiss Media and documents the history behind one of Kingston’s lost architectural monuments, the Kingston Post Office. Blauweiss debuted the original show at Dutton Architecture in October 2017. Since then, Blauweiss and Karen Berelowitz have transformed the exhibition into a book of the same name, due to be released in mid-December 2018.
“We feel it’s really fitting to have this particular subject matter displayed in City Hall, which almost met the same fate as the post office, but was thankfully saved,” said Blauweiss. “For this reason, we created two additional displays highlighting City Hall’s history and beautiful renovation.”
The public is encouraged to attend a Closing Reception at City Hall on Tuesday, December 4th from 5:30-7:00pm, with a talk by Blauweiss at 6:00pm.
“Blauweiss Media has once again brought the past alive with this amazing exhibition,” said Mayor Noble. “Each day, visitors of City Hall are absolutely stunned with these incredible images. In addition to the collection’s vividness and beauty, it is a stark reminder that our community must continue to protect our historic assets or suffer the consequences of their loss.”
The exhibition is one of the largest curated for the ground floor of City Hall. With support from the City of Kingston’s Department of Arts and Cultural Affairs, this location will host a selection of exciting and engaging exhibitions in 2019.
