Art Center sponsors a garden party to celebrate the opening of the newest exhibition "Drawn by New York," August 16, 2009.
Celebrating the 400th anniversary of Henry Hudson’s famed voyage up the Hudson in 1609, the exhibition Drawn by New York: Six Centuries of Watercolors and Drawings at the New-York Historical Society will be on view at the Frances Lehman Loeb Art Center from August 14 through November 1, 2009. On Sunday, August 16, to celebrate the exhibition opening, there will be a Garden Party in the afternoon where guests will enjoy the “elegance and refinement of turn-of-the-century New York society of the 1900s,” according the Coordinator of Public Education and Information, Nicole Roylance. She emphasized that: “Families are encouraged to come this event. Children will be able to make their own summer garden party hats and paper silhouettes inspired by works in the exhibition.”Announcement Posted
