***All funds-raised will go toward restoring the façade of historic St. Mark's Church In The Bowery***
Originally a church of Manhattan's elite, St. Mark's became a progressive force in the neighborhood both socially and culturally. Supportive of immigrant, labor and civil rights, the church was a meeting place for Black Panthers and Young Lords, and launched the first lesbian healthcare clinic.
Poets like W.H. Auden (who was a parishoner), William Carlos Williams, Edna St. Vincent Millay, Amy Lowell, Carl Sandburg, Kahlil Gibran, Allen Ginsberg, Patti Smith and Jim Carroll have all read here; since 1966, the St Marks Poetry Project has organized poetry events. The Danspace project has featured dance legends like Isadora Duncan, Martha Graham and Merce Cunningham. Sam Shepherd's first two plays were produced here, and Andy Warhol screened his early films in the sanctuary....
