Special Exhibition Tours We Offer

Chinese American: Exclusion/Inclusion (September 26, 2014 – April 19, 2015)

A selected look at the long, complex, often troubled, but also mutually sought-after relations between China, the U.S., and the people of both nations from the 1770s through the present day. The exhibition includes a particular focus on American policies toward immigration from China and the struggle over the Chinese Exclusion Act—the 1882 law that severely restricted immigration from China and prevented all naturalization of Chinese immigrants, as well as initiating an era of increasingly draconian anti-immigrant laws for the Chinese and others.

Audubon’s Aviary: The Final Flight (Part III of The Complete Flock) (March 6, 2015 – May 10, 2015)

Part III of the highly acclaimed tripartite series Audubon’s Aviary: The Complete Flock will highlight Audubon’s watercolor models for Havell plates 306–435 (fascicles 62–87). At this time he was rushing to complete his great work and, therefore, represented the outliers and western species to bookend the North American continent. See why history has deemed Audubon an American icon and New-York Historical's watercolors a national treasure.

Lincoln and the Jews (March 20, 2015 – June 7, 2015)

This exhibition focuses on the significant, and hitherto unknown, relationships and interactions between Abraham Lincoln and his Jewish friends and associates. At a time when Jews comprised less than one-half of one percent of the American population, Lincoln’s positive and meaningful personal relationships with Jewish individuals not only arguably changed him but also had an important and lasting impact on the status of American Jews. Lincoln stood up to his anti-Semitic generals even as he depended upon them to win the war, and became an advocate for Jewish equality and acceptance.

The Hirschfeld Century: The Art of Al Hirschfeld (May 22, 2015 – October 12, 2015)

Al Hirschfeld (1903–2003) brought a set of visual conventions to the task of performance portraiture when he made his debut in 1926. Now for the first time, nine decades of his art are collected in The Hirschfeld Century: The Art of Al Hirschfeld documenting Hirschfeld's life and career and, to a great extent, the history of the performing arts in the 20th century and beyond. Visitors will have the opportunity to trace this unique artist's evolution by viewing his own body of work, including drawings, paintings, selections from sketchbooks, ephemera, and video.
