New York Folklore, the storefront of the New York Folklore Society in Schenectady, has reopened to the public. Face mask, social distancing, and occupancy guidelines are in effect.
The organization has expanded to the second floor, doubling their square footage. The entire first floor is gallery and shop, with the front gallery for special exhibits, and the rear gallery for our New York State artists. The current exhibit is the work of Mark Swanberry, of Fulton County.
The (fairly recent) revamping of the first floor included LED lighting and lighting fixture upgrades, installation of double rows of track lighting the length of the galleries, new carpeting, and a new workstation and furniture.
The second floor includes a private office for our Executive Director, Ellen McHale, conference space, and a library.
Last year, the facade of the building was redesigned and the project encompassed a more modern look, with upgrades to the windows for increased UV protection and climate management. This project took over two months to complete.
