Shirley Chisholm Monument + Welcome Center Presentation

Join Prospect Park Alliance for a Shirley Chisholm Monument + Welcome Center Presentation with Shirley Chisholm Monument artist Olalekan Jeyifous!

Through funding from New York City Council Speaker Adrienne Adams and the Brooklyn Delegation, led by Council Members Crystal Hudson, Rita Joseph, Shahana Hanif and former Council Majority Leader, Cultural Affairs Commissioner Laurie Cumbo, the Alliance is transforming an existing building at the Parkside and Ocean entrance to Prospect Park into a space that complements the new Shirley Chisholm Monument planned for this entrance to the park. The Center will orient visitors to the life and legacy of the Brooklyn trailblazer, while providing visitor amenities.
