ABOUT KATHERINE TAYLOR
Katherine Taylor is a Boston-based photographer specializing in photojournalism, portraiture, and events. A graduate of Boston University’s Center for Digital Imaging Arts, Taylor has worked as a freelance photojournalist for The New York Times and The Boston Phoenix. She travels frequently to the Dominican Republic and has developed a strong interest in the people, culture, and dramatic landscape of the country’s ecosystems. In 2010, she collaborated with a sponsored research project in the western part of the island undertaken by The Grove School of Engineering at The City College of New York, examining the environmental impact of the expansion of Lake Enriquillo.
ABOUT CUNY DSI GALLERY
The CUNY Dominican Studies Institute Gallery (CUNY DSI Gallery), housed in the multipurpose room of the Institute's Archives and Library facility at The City College of New York, is the only exhibit space in New York City devoted exclusively to works of art by and about people of Dominican descent. The Gallery celebrates and showcases artists who have a unique perspective on the Dominican experience.
Founded in 1992 at The City College of New York, the Dominican Studies Institute of the City University of New York (CUNY DSI) is the nation’s first, university-based research institute devoted to the study of people of Dominican descent in the United States and other parts of the world. CUNY DSI’s mission is to produce and disseminate research and scholarship about Dominicans and about the Dominican Republic. The Institute houses the Dominican Archives and the Dominican Library, the first and only institutions in the United States collecting primary and secondary source material about Dominicans. In 2010, the Institute opened the doors of its Archives and Library facility to exhibitions of art by and about people of Dominican descent, becoming the first major institution in New York City to devote its exhibition space exclusively to such artwork.
Fundado en 1992, el Instituto de Estudios Dominicanos de la Universidad de la Ciudad de Nueva York (CUNY DSI), con sede en el City College de Nueva York, es el único centro de investigación universitario de los Estados Unidos dedicado exclusivamente a la investigación académica sobre las personas de ascendencia dominicana en los Estados Unidos y otras partes del mundo. Su misión es producir y difundir conocimiento académico sobre los dominicanos y la República Dominicana. Además, el Instituto promueve el avance de la enseñanza en el área de Estudios Dominicanos. El Instituto alberga el Archivo Dominicano y la Biblioteca Dominicana, las primeras y únicas instituciones en los Estados Unidos dedicadas a recoger fuentes primarias y secundarias sobre los dominicanos. En el 2010, el Instituto también abrió sus puertas para exposiciones de arte de tema dominicano o creados por artistas de origen dominicano.
