Description

Discover the maritime and trade culture of early New York City as revealed in a collection of intriguing objects like those purchased and sold by Flatbush shopkeeper Margrieta van Varick. See the premiere performance of a new shadow-puppet play about the adventures of Margrieta, a Dutch merchant, created by master puppeteer Caroline Borderies. Make your own shadow puppet inspired by one of the treasures you find as you navigate the exhibition with a tour guide. For more information or to receive a schedule of activities, please call 212.501.3011 or e-mail programs@bgc.bard.edu.
