Works integrated with the historical artifacts of the Morris-Jumel Mansion Museum, NYC.
Inspired by the inhabitants and cultural history of Manhattan’s Oldest House, Arroyo created original works integrated with the historical objects and furniture of the Morris-Jumel Mansion Museum’s permanent collection. These works create a conversation between the past and the present and connect the experiences of Mary Morris and Eliza Jumel with the contemporary viewer. Arroyo has been exploring notions of identity, gender and class throughout her career. In this project,she investigates how women navigated life within the boundaries of late 1700s and early 1800s society.
