Public School 23 Reunion, 1991

In 1991, MOCA held the second reunion for teachers and students of the defunct New York Public School 23 located at 70 Mulberry Street. The school ceased operation in the late 1970s, and the building was converted to house cultural and arts organizations, including MOCA. The reunion saw a variety of ages and ethnicities attending; the Chinese demographic showed a dramatic increase after the complete repeal of the Exclusion Act in 1965. During the reunion, artifacts and anecdotes were collected from attendees and turned into an exhibition called What Did You Learn in School Today? P.S. 23, 1893-1976, which opened later that year.
