MAMARONECK, N.Y. – Acclaimed art educator and historian Suzanne Altman will present three unique lectures on “Great Museums of New York” at the Mamaroneck Library on select Sundays in April and May.
The first lecture, entitled “Must See Treasures of The Metropolitan Museum of Art,” will be from 2-4 p.m. Sunday in the library’s community room.
“From an Egyptian temple shipped block by block across the ocean; to a Roman bedroom preserved by the ashes of Mout Vesuvius; to the most expensive (small) painting the museum owns; this lecture takes us on a tour of one of the finest museums in the world,” said Altman.
The one-hour multi-media presentation will be followed by a question-and-answer period and light refreshments.
The second lecture, “Highlights of The Museum of Modern Art,” will be from 2-4 p.m. Sunday, April 26 in the community room and will feature works by Cezanne, Matisse, Picasso, Rauschenberg, Pollock and Warhol.
“Other Great Museums: The Brooklyn Museum, The Frick, The Jewish Museum, and Others,” the third and final lecture in the series, will be from 2-4 p.m. Sunday, May 16 in the community room.
Altman is an artist, art educator and art historian who has exhibited her own work in New York City, New Jersey and the Hudson Valley, and has taught and lectured in many venues and to all age groups. She taught art history for many years, and has led student art trips to Italy and Greece.
