Green Map's 25th anniversary exhibit and events
As promised, we are back to share news with you about the Green Map exhibit, How Green Is My City? The show opened on September 6th and will remain on view for the rest of 2020 at the Museum of Reclaimed Urban Space, 155 Avenue C in Manhattan’s East Village. MoRUS Museum is open Tuesdays and Thursday-Sunday from 11AM-7PM. Given current uncertainties, check online at GreenMap.org/2020exhibit and morusnyc.org for updates culminating in a December closing event.

Find this small museum at the intersection of history and activism in the community where Green Map has been based for 25 years. Accordingly, our show is mostly about our own past accomplishments, locally and globally. We also include current projects that your donations have helped to support, such as our mapping platform in development, which will be featured in online demos and this neighborhood event:
In person: Put your Spot on the Green Map! Saturday, September 19, 5-7pm
Celebrate North American Day of Sustainable Communities by putting your favorite green sites on the map. Share your knowledge about places, projects and practices and find out about the OGM2 mapping platform at this outdoor event. It’s on the plaza at Grace Exhibtion Space, 2 blocks north of MoRUS at 182 Avenue C, where the “Microbes to Metropolis” exhibit by MoS MoBS LoBS Lab (by dd Maucher) is also on view.
