Special Exhibition Tours We Offer

The Works: Salon Style at the New-York Historical Society (June 20, 2014 – February 8, 2015)

This installation displays numerous gems from the New-York Historical Society's permanent collection in nineteenth-century Salon Style, showcasing the depth and range of our holdings. Everything from self-portraits of Asher Durand to Hudson River School landscapes to religious and history paintings will be on view, in close proximity that unites these typically separate styles.

Chinese American: Exclusion/Inclusion (September 26, 2014 – May 25, 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.

Homefront & Battlefield: Quilts & Context in the Civil War (April 04, 2014 - August 24, 2014)

To mark the 150th anniversary of the Civil War (1861-1865), the New-York Historical Society presents a groundbreaking traveling exhibition, Homefront & Battlefield: Quilts & Context in the Civil War, organized by the American Textile History Museum. The exhibition uses quilts, textiles, clothing, and other artifacts to connect deeply moving and insightful personal stories about the war, its causes, and its aftermath with the broader national context and public history.

Textiles were integral to the Civil War— physically, economically, ideologically, and emotionally—and linked soldiers and civilians. The exhibition builds on recent scholarship in social and economic history to tell of the events that led to the war, the stories of men and women affected by the Civil War, and the opportunities and challenges that followed it. Through a wealth of artifacts drawn from around the nation, the exhibition will invite visitors to see and acknowledge the human experiences beneath the veneer of Blue and Gray.
