Who We Are: Values Walking Tour

Exploring Values Through Art

The Y’s Norman E. Alexander Center for Jewish Life is proud to present the Who We Are: Values Walking Tour, showcasing local artists representing a different humanitarian value each month.

The Norman E. Alexander Center for Jewish Life at the YM&YWHA of Washington Heights & Inwood (the Y) is inviting artists from Northern Manhattan to participate in an innovative community art project: Who We Are: Values Walking Tour. Through this project, we welcome local artists to submit works of art related to a specific set of humanitarian values, one for each month of the year, to engage the community in a values-based conversation through monthly art exhibitions.
