On the occasion of the 50th Anniversary of New York City's Landmark Preservation Law, the Museum has organized an exhibition about the restoration of the Voelker-Orth family home and adapting the residence to serve as a museum. The exhibition includes materials in the Museum's archive and papers drawn from several NYC agencies, documenting changes the property from the late 1890s to the present.

On view September 19th - November 24, 2015 Tuesday, Saturday and Sunday, 1-4pm

Closing reception, Saturday, November 21st, 2-4pm.

In recent years watercolor became the preferred painting medium for artist-environmentalist Christine Yost. We've invited art critic/documentarian Larry Qualls to curate a selection of her work for her first solo exhibition. The paintings feature cats and dogs, brimming with personality, filled with light and life!
