Ms Mary Alexander
Join us on this much acclaimed ‘time travel’ virtual tour of New York with art historian and Arts Society favourite Mary Alexander. We will discover more about the artists, designers, patrons and social climbers who shaped this extraordinary city. We will look at the people, visions and fortunes which created the great art collections including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Frick, the Guggenheim and MoMA. Imaginative use of digital photography will recreate the atmosphere of the brownstones and art clubs of Greenwich Village, the marvels of the Rockefeller Center and the interiors of the grand hotels and nightclubs. There will be something here both for those who know the city well and those who have never visited it.
