The Neighborhood Preservation Center hosted an information session for not-for-profit groups and municipalities on Preserve New York and Technical Assistance Grants (TAG), the signature grant programs of the Preservation League of New York State and the New York State Council on the Arts (NYSCA). Erin Tobin, the League’s Director of Preservation, explained the requirements of the grants, the process of applying, and discussed some successful previous applicants.

This program also included a presentation by Kristin Herron, Arts Program Director for Architecture + Design at NYSCA, who briefly reviewed funding opportunities for General Operating and Project Support for FY2017

NPC Night at the MOFAD Lab

Tuesday, February 2 from 6-8pm
MOFAD Lab, 62 Bayard Street, Brooklyn, NY 11222
Tickets were $40.

The Neighborhood Preservation Center invited guests to celebrate ‘Night at the MOFAD Lab!’

The Museum of Food and Drink is New York City’s first food museum with exhibits you can eat.  Conceived in 2012, it aims to be a global leader in food education, featuring innovative exhibits and programs that demonstrate how exciting (and important) it is to learn and care about the culture, history, science, production, and commerce of food and drink.

MOFAD incubated at the Neighborhood Preservation Center from May 2012 until August 2015, so we were particularly excited to celebrate its recent brick-and-mortar move. The MOFAD Lab, a 5,000 square-foot design and exhibition studio, opened to the public this past October in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.  This space offers visitors an interactive experience and in-depth look at topics, such as their current exhibit, Flavor:  Making it and Faking It.

The evening’s program included a private opening of the MOFAD Lab, led by Executive Director Peter Kim, and a small reception.  

We would like to thank the evening's sponsors:
