    I hope you won’t mind my mentioning an ongoing exhibition of prints at the Metropolitan College of New York that presents both a review of some of the accomplishments of the “working groups” that arose in the Occupy camps and a series of photos of the OWS-NY camp. Affinity groups like the Alternative Banking Group, Occupy Sandy, the Debt Collective, and Occupy the SEC had a major impact for the better in ways that continued long after the camps were evicted; some of their stories, briefly overviewed in the exhibition, are both inspiring and possibly instructive. The exhibition is on view through the end of the year on MCNY’s two campuses, one blocks from Zuccotti Park and the other in the Bronx; details at https://www.mcny.edu/blog/2021/09/06/mcny-galleries-occupy-wall-street/?fbclid=IwAR3aImCTurXuZibcAv33Gwqs1i30MDdTk7j4-BZhjZtHu5HTRtNPw_-asNc .
