With all the cold out there, I think the thought of fresh, handmade donuts is comforting. We’ve gotten more great media coverage for the exhibit Keep Your Eye Upon the Donut on view at Brooklyn’s City Reliquary through March 2, 2014.  The beautiful photographs in many of these stories are by Anna O. Grant, who also photographed the 9 present day donut shops highlighted in the exhibit.

For many the donut is a sweet loaded with memories. This is the beginning of a project to capture, preserve, and reflect on people’s donut memories. Memories included in these first two installments were recorded at Brooklyn’s City Reliquary during the opening events for the exhibit Keep Your Eye Upon the Donut: Donut Shops past & present of Brooklyn & Manhattan.

Before or after you visit Keep Your Eye Upon the Donut at Brooklyn’s City Reliquary Museum (on view through February 28, 2014), I hope that you’ll also visit the 9 present day donut shops we’ve highlighted in it. Here’s a donut shop map to make it even easier for you to find them! Carpe Donut NYC isn’t on this map since they are a food truck and their location changes daily, but they can typically be found in Manhattan during the week and Brooklyn on the weekend.
