This exhibit’s opening was an indoor and outdoor affair. A block party outside allowed people space to circulate as the interior was keeping to the safety protocols of social distance and masks.  This exhibit’s opening will be indoors and outdoors. The occupancy inside will be limited to maintain social distancing, and masks will be required indoors. There will be outside space available to circulate. 

Museo de Los Sures was established in 2012 via the partnership of Southside United HFDC–Los Sures, Cornell University, and Churches United for Fair Housing. “This museum will ensure that we do not forget South Williamsburg’s roots or those who have fought for the rights of established residents,” said Ramon Peguero, who at that time was Los Sures’s Executive Director.

The Museo de Los Sures is located at 120 South 1st Street. Sobre/Vivir: Superando la Pandemia en Los Sures can be viewed on Thursdays, Fridays, or Saturdays from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. during June 18–July 31.
