UPCOMING EVENTS

Women’s Works: Female Artists at the Metropolitan Museum of Art

Thursday, March 18, 7:00-8:30 PM

Julie Le Brun (1780–1819) Looking in a Mirror, 1787

In honor of Women’s History Month, take a virtual "walk" through the galleries of the Metropolitan Museum of Art with art historian and professional guide Emma Guest-Consales, '90, Ph.D., as she shows us some of the most important works created by women who were often limited by their gender in the subjects or mediums in their artistic endeavors. You also will learn how female collectors helped to shape The Met itself.

SCCNYC commissioned Emma to curate this event, specifically in honor of Women’s History Month and with you in mind. Wherever possible, all of the objects shown are currently on view at the museum so attendees will be able to see them independently in person at leisure, using the checklist that will be provided for the presentation.
