Middle Church in NYC's East Village hosts the 20-piece installation Divinity: Queer Icons by Gabriel Garcia Roman, running through June 2018.

Affiliated with United Church of Christ and Reformed Church in America, Middle Collegiate Church is the oldest of the Collegiate Churches in New York, which was organized in 1628 and is the oldest continuously active congregation in America.
