“Museum of Broken” Pop-Up Opens with Powerful Displays

This past Saturday, the Museum of Broken Windows Pop-Up Exhibit opened its doors in Greenwich Village, New York (9 West 8th St b/w 5th & 6th) to display 60 works of art from 30 artists illustrating a critical look at the practice of “broken windows policing.” Curated by the New York Civil Liberties Union and the Soze Agency, the Museum of Broken Windows grew out of the NYCLU’s decades-long advocacy and litigation to reform police practices that harm New Yorkers, including curbing stop-and-frisk and promoting transparency and accountability. A recent study conducted by the NYCLU documenting the effects of aggressive policing on local communities can be viewed here.

The Museum is hosting a series of discussions all week as well as a screening of the critically-acclaimed Hulu documentary Crime & Punishment on Saturday at 7 pm. The pop-up is FREE and open to the public. For more information, click here.
