STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. — February 3, 2018. On Saturday local activists Teresa Caliari and Bobby Digi donned new hats – creator and curator, respectively – to produce an exhibit documenting a year of protest in New York City’s “forgotten borough”, showing that there is resistance to oppression and corruption even in Trump’s only NYC stronghold.
