Alexander Hamilton U.S. Custom House.

SATURDAY,  December 30, 2017
Let's get one last weekend drawing in this year.  We'll sketch the museum’s permanent and temporary exhibitions—exploring the diversity of the Native people of the Americas.

The building itself is a fantastic Beaux Arts structure with loads of interesting lines and perspective challenges.

The National Museum of the American Indian–New York, is located on the south side of Bowling Green, in lower Manhattan, adjacent to the northeast corner of Battery Park.

Start time:   10 AM.  Admission if free.  Be aware they have a surprisingly serious security screen including a metal detector

-  4 & 5 trains to Bowling Green
-  1 train to Rector Street or South Ferry
-  R (& W on weekdays) trains to Whitehall Street
-  J & Z trains to Broad Street
-  2 & 3 trains to Wall Street

Lunch:  Meet in the lobby at noon for a short walk to Flavors  - 27 Whitehall St.

Afternoon1 PM - Back sketching at the museum

Show and Tell3:00 PM - A short walk to Murphy’s Tavern at 6 Stone St, (212) 425-1700 where we will share drawings, good stories and a snack or refreshments if you're so inclined.

- Despite the metal detector I’ve brought my sketching stool with no problem.  A stool is always a handy item that allows you to sketch from the very best spot.
