Students will enjoy two feasts for the eyes and also a box lunch in this daytime walking tour in the upper East Side.  From 10 to 11:30am, a Central Park docent will guide students through the hidden wonders of the Conservatory Garden at Fifth Avenue and 105th Street.  This secluded six-acre oasis in Central Park, just inside of the Vanderbilt Gate, contains three formal gardens planted in the classical French, Italian, and English styles, and derives its name from the 1898 glass conservatory that once stood there.  The gardens boast heirloom roses, formal hedges, and a myriad of colorful flowering perennials, shrubs, and trees.  Our tour is scheduled so that we can see the chrysanthemum in prime bloom.  After the tour, students will have a boxed lunch at the Museum of the City of New York, across the street; menu choices will be provided in advance to registered students.  Then, from 12:30 to 2pm, a museum docent will lead students through Beyond Suffrage: 100 Years of Women & Politics in New York.  The exhibit traces women’s political activism in New York City from the struggle to win the vote, through the 20th century and into our own times.  The exhibition highlights women at the center of New York’s politics over the course of 100 years and features a diverse range of activists both familiar and lesser known.  Beyond Suffrage features rare artifacts, documents, costumes, photographs and audio-visual materials spanning more than a century that show how women have been politicized – and in turn changed politics – in New York and beyond.

The artist Frederic Remington (1861–1909) — chronicler par excellence of the American West — has long been celebrated for his achievements as an illustrator, a painter, a sculptor, and a writer.  Running from July 3, 2017, to January 2, 2018, the exhibition presents the artist’s legacy through some 20 paintings, sculptures, works on paper, and illustrated books from the late 1880s until his death.  His insightful depictions of trappers, Native Americans, cavalry, scouts, and, above all, his archetypal cowboys are some of the most iconic images of the Old West.
