Event description

Description

In the galleries, families will explore the landscape of 19th century New York City. Nearly unrecognizable to New Yorkers now, farmland dominated many of the boroughs until 1898, when the separate cities of Brooklyn, Queens, the Bronx, and Staten Island joined Manhattan to make up what we now know as New York City. Through a guided tour, participants will consider how our city has evolved over the past 200 years and create an artwork that reflects their own borough: then and now.


Families and Folk Art introduces children ages 4 to 12 and their accompanying adults to folk art through interactive discussion-based tours in the galleries followed by hands-on artmaking activities inspired by objects in the museum. Space is limited; registration required. More info: 212. 265. 1040, ext. 381, or familyprograms@folkartmuseum.org

Families and Folk Art is supported by the estate of Marlene Gordon.
