EXPLORE NYC, our portable, hands-on science exhibit about urban nature landed in Sara D Roosevelt Park to begin a fall residency in NYC Chinatown. Passersby could stop and try biological drawing techniques using water color brushes donated by Blick Art Materials. Today featured urban birds and local ecologist Georgia Silvera Seamans from WSP Eco Projects. Also on site was Uni Project artist-in-residence Hui Ma. Thanks as always to our partner NYC Parks. Made possible in part with funds contributed by individuals, including Paula Bock, Romy and David Cohen, the Moretti Lee Family, and Joycelyn Te. You can help us extend our residency into the fall months by joining our special fund drive.

We're getting a "new" name... Street Lab.

The Uni Project is the work of Street Lab, a nonprofit launched in 2006 in Boston, where we created community-oriented programs for public space. In 2011, we migrated Street Lab to New York City and launched the Uni Project. The Uni began as a single, portable reading room and has since grown into a city-wide initiative offering more than 700 days of pop-up programming in 150+ public spaces across the city. In 2019, we are re-introducing our original name Street Lab to tie all this work together going forward, with much more to come.

For now, details about our programs are available here on the Uni Project web site. Soon, that content will move to www.streetlab.org. Thanks for sticking with us!
