ON WEDNESDAY, MAY 18 at 6pm
JOIN ASPP AT 
THEMUSEUM OF THE CITY OF NEW YORK FOR A SPECIAL EVENING!

The museum is known for its comprehensive collection of photographs, which includes works by Jacob Riis and Berenice Abbott, as well as many Depression-era Federal Art Project photographs. The collections also include paintings, drawings and prints, featuring New York City and its  residents, as well as costumes, decorative objects and furniture, toys, rare books and manuscripts, marine and military collections, and more.

ASPP members and friends will get a special tour of MCNY‘s Digital Lab, and an introduction to the new online Collections Portal. Additionally, we will get an insiders’ tour of their cold storage, to see masterpieces not yet available to the public.

As time allows, we can view current exhibitions crowd-free! A reception will follow with light refreshments.

Since there are only 40 tickets available for this spectacular evening, it is vital that you pre-register online through EventBrite.
Tickets on sale starting Monday, April 25. 

We are grateful to Robbi Siegel and her excellent crew at MCNY for getting this event on our agenda!
