Event details

In the nineteenth century, the place of the arts in a democracy was a hotly debated topic in the United States. The new exhibition Making American Taste: Narrative Art for a New Democracy integrates the broad range of styles and narrative themes — from history, literary and religious subjects to the more familiar rural and domestic genres — through which Americans were expected to attain cultural refinement. Join Senior Art Historian Linda S. Ferber for an intimate tour of the exhibition, featuring fifty-five  works from the New-York Historical Society’s collection. Gallery tours are limited to thirty-five guests per tour. Please buy tickets in advance.
