About the Project

For Projects at the Precinct, a select group of visual artists showed works at the First Precinct House at 48 Old Slip, the location of the Creative Time offices in 1981.


For these projects, the artists were encouraged to consider the character of the setting, letting such elements including a tall oak desk at the entryway or the men’s and women’s jail cells, dictate the nature of their installations. Not surprisingly, themes of incarceration, secret lives, and time pervaded.
