PHOTOVILLE AT A GLANCE
We are proud and humbled to be presenting the 9th year of the Photoville festival. Like so many trying to navigate our way during this extraordinary time, in the midst of fighting a global pandemic, a long overdue reckoning of social injustice, and financial insecurity, we took a long look at what we could do and we adjusted, shifted, tweaked, reinvented, punted – we hustled – and found a way for the festival to still take place, while staying true to its spirit.
So yes, Photoville will look slightly different this year!

How can you view Photoville Safely?
All our photo exhibitions are OUTDOORS. To get the most out of your viewing experience we suggest taking in the photography in the daylight. When you are visiting, please be aware of adhering to the mandated safety guidelines outlined by the New York State government.
We ask that you maintain a minimum of 6 foot distance between you and other Photoville patrons while viewing the exhibitions, wear a face mask/face covering and do not visit exhibitions if you are having symptoms such as fever, coughing or shortness of breath. Please do not visit exhibitions if you have been in close contact with someone who has or may have COVID-19. Please do not visit exhibitions if you have traveled outside of New York in the last 14 days.
Exhibitions are best viewed in Daylight hours and are open whenever the park or space is open to the public.
