September 2, 2016 (New York, NY) – The Sikh Coalition is just two weeks away from launching the first-ever Sikh photography exhibition in the United States. The Sikh Project
, our collaboration with talented British photographers, Amit and Naroop
, captures the beauty of the Sikh faith and the depth of the Sikh American experience.
As we reflect on 15 years since 9/11 and commemorate the 15th anniversary milestone for our organization, we believe it’s an important moment to celebrate the Sikh experience and identity. The Sikh Project includes 38 new portraits of turbaned men and women that embody the diversity of the Sikh American community and recognize the challenges and triumphs of what it means to be Sikh in America.
In addition to the thousands who will visit the exhibition in person, media coverage of the Sikh Project is reaching millions more as the Sikh Coalition uses the project to further educate the American public about the Sikh faith, experiences and traditions.
WHEN: Saturday, September 17 – Sunday, September 25. The exhibition will be open from 10am-8pm EST with extended hours on the weekends.
NEW LOCATION! 530 Broadway, New York, NY 10012. The space is easily accessible by train and subway, with the nearest stations being Bleecker Street/Broadway–Lafayette Street and Spring Street. Parking is also available with multiple parking garages in the vicinity.
