HISTORIC LANDMARKS PRESERVATION CENTER
CULTURAL MEDALLION PROGRAM
October 10, 2017
New York has been at the forefront of highlighting its rich cultural, economic, political and social history. More than 15 years ago, the not-for-profit Historic Landmarks Preservation Center, under the leadership of its chair, Barbaralee Diamonstein-Spielvogel, created this Cultural Medallion program.
It was initiated to create a sense of pride in history and of place among New Yorkers and visitors, to document significant individuals, and notable occurrences related to the City’s cultural, economic, political, and social history.
Cultural Medallions are placed on buildings associated with distinguished New Yorkers involved in the arts, sciences, the law, business, education, sports and politics. The elegant oval terra-cotta, black and white plaques recognize that history is about more than bricks and mortar, but what people accomplished under the city’s roofs that truly matters. “Not only do they help bring history alive,” Diamonstein-Spielvogel says of the medallions, “they’re meant to remind people of how New York became as rich and vital, as energetic and dynamic as it is. They’re also meant to inspire you in your own life. This program is honoring the past and, we are, I hope, motivating people in the future.”
