Today, I visited the New York Public Library to see the exhibit:
Unfortunately, aside from the large banner hanging out front, the exhibit was a bit of a disappointment. It was only a small hallway display comprised of a few small cases, placards, and enlarged photographs from the movement in 1969.
I am glad the movement has gotten this exposure, and I am glad the NYPL wants to commemorate the gay rights movement…but I think this could have been better executed. This is a huge deal in politics and the movement is finally seeing a substantial acquisition of rights, so I just think the exhibit could have been more effective, larger, and possibly serving to connect 1969 and the Stonewall Riots to today.
