Franklin the Peoples Park

Posted: June 20, 2023

Beginning June 24, Franklin Park Conservatory and Botanical Gardens will feature the works of local photographer, Steve Harrison. Franklin the Peoples Park focuses on the activity in Franklin Park from everyday occurrences to historical moments over the last 50 years. Harrison began photographing the park in the 1960s when it was a gathering place for young black people. He also captured historical moments in the park from the 1960s to present-day, including Ameriflora and Dick Gregory’s Food Run. The exhibition will display approximately 50 of his photographs taken in Franklin Park, including large panoramic pieces.
