PLSI Board Member Receives Grant for 2018 Project

February 5, 2018

 

 

The review panel of Staten Island Arts has awarded PLSI Board member Virginia N. Sherry with a 2018 Art Fund Grant from the city Department of Cultural Affairs to support her project, “Vanishing Historic Garages on Staten Island: Cultural and Architectural Significance.”

 

These original structures, dating back to the early 1900s and the arrival of the “Automobile Age,” are fast disappearing, lost to tear-downs or substantial renovation.

 

The project will inventory surviving historic garages across the borough and document key architectural features, from roofs and doors to windows and hardware.

 

One project goal is to increase public awareness of these notable architectural treasures and encourage owners to maintain and not demolish them.
