Join us for an educator-led tour of two fascinating exhibitions focusing on historical and contemporary art inspired by and made in New York City. Learn about our exciting outreach suitcase program, create a small artwork, and receive complimentary lesson plans. Barbara Nessim: An Artful Life features paintings, prints, collages, textiles,sculpture, digital art, and illustrations, spanning the artist’s career beginning in the 1960s. Through a range of primary source material–including maps, woodcuts, etchings, lithographs, and furniture–Visualizing 19th-Century New York examines how entrepreneurs produced a range of prints and photographs in order to make sense of the booming metropolis and to promote their own manufactures to national and international markets.
