Attention: Weekday Urban Sketchers Change of Venue
Since this week is spring vacation for the NYC schools, it is anticipated that the American Museum of Natural History will be extremely crowded, making it very difficult to sketch especially in the new exhibit.
Therefore, the Weekday Urban Sketchers will meet at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, thereby switching the venues of next week's schedule with this week's.
The Metropolitan Museum of Art is a virtual warehouse of some of the most beautiful objects in the world, amongst which are a vast collection of important and valuable musical instruments. The Andre Mertens Gallery of Musical Instruments, which houses over 250 objects has recently been renovated and reopened. We will explore this collection for the beauty these instruments possess.
Of course you are welcome to explore any of the museum's collections and share your work with us at lunch.
