LES History Month Special: CHALK/LES @ MOCA

Sat, May 3, 2014 @ 12:30pm - 2:00pm


MOCA is hosting one of several chalking stations in honor of Lower East Side History Month in front of our space at 215 Centre Street from 12:30pm-2:00pm on May 3rd.

Start here and chalk your way through the Lower East Side! Photograph your work and tweet it with the hashtag #ChalkLES.


CHALK/LES is a 3 day community-engagement project to celebrate the history of New York’s Lower East Side-- which includes Chinatown, Little Italy, the East Village, and Alphabet City.


Come share your memories, events, and images of Chinatown by chalking sidewalks and open spaces throughout the neighborhood on May 2, 3, and 4th. All generations welcome, free for all!

Join us for 'Picnic at the Pier' on Sunday, May 4 as well! Click here for more information.


Lower East Side History Month is the annual celebration of the rich and diverse history of the LES, taking place during May. Conceived by LES-based arts and community groups, LES History Month aims to connect our present to our past, exploring how our history can inform and inspire our future.
