Add to Calendar 04-12-2011 04-12-2011 15 Winter Family Day Celebration This year's annual family day draws inspiration from the Morgan's current exhibitions: "Charles Dickens at 200" and "David, Delacroix, and Revolutionary France: Drawings from the Louvre." Families will travel back to the days of Dickens and Revolutionary France with art workshops, walking characters, a costume photo shoot, festive dancing, and more. The Grand Falloons company will lead visitors into a lively celebration of Victorian London with impersonations of "A Christmas Carol" characters Ebenezer Scrooge, Bob Cratchit, and the Ghosts of Christmas Past and Present. The Grand Falloons Company will also bring Dickens and his masterpiece to life in Mr. Morgan's spectacular Library with spirited readings of short excerpts from "A Christmas Carol." Students of the American Ballet Theater will offer excerpts from the famed ballet, "The Nutcracker." Kids will travel through time, trying on colorful handmade costumes and creating tableaux vivants inspired by French art. Digital photographs will be taken and sent to families by e-mail. Using an array of colorful trimmings, like ribbons, feathers, flowers, and tulles, educator Deborah Lutz will help children recreate the extravagant hats worn in France by ladies and gentlemen around the time of the Revolution. English Country Dance specialist Beverly Francis will lead children and adults through the moves that delight Mr. and Mrs. Fezziwig and their guests in "A Christmas Carol." http://www.nymetroparents.com/2014neweventinfo.cfm?id=97916 The Morgan Library & Museum true DD/MM/YYYY

Venue Description: The Morgan Library & Museum began as the private library of financier Pierpont Morgan, one of the foremost collectors and cultural benefactors in the United States. In this complex of buildings in the heart of New York City, Morgan had begun to assemble a collection of illuminated, literary, and historical manuscripts, early printed books, and old master drawings and prints as early as 1890. Dedicated to fostering a greater knowledge, understanding, and appreciation of primarily Western history and culture, this educational institution records and reflects achievements of European and American literature, music, art, and history. In an Italian Renaissance-style palazzo with three magnificent rooms epitomizing America's Age of Elegance, The Morgan Library includes a new performance hall, a welcoming entrance on Madison Avenue, a new café and a new restaurant, a gift shop, a new reading room, and collections storage. Still one of America?s premier institutions, The Morgan Library & Museum has continued to acquire rare materials as well as important music manuscripts, early children's books, Americana, and materials from the twentieth century, all open to public, fulfilling Pierpont Morgan?s dream of making the library and its treasures available to scholars and the patrons alike. The Morgan Library & Museum is located at 225 Madison Avenue at 36th Street and is open Tuesday through Thursday 10:30am- 5pm, Fridays 10:30am- 9pm, Saturdays 10am-6pm, and Sundays 11am-6pm. The Morgan is closed on Mondays, Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day, and New Year's Day. It closes at 4pm on Christmas and New Year's Eve. Admission to The Morgan is $12 for adults, $8 for children (under 16), $8 for seniors (65 and over), and $8 for students (with current ID). Admission to The Morgan is free for children 12 and under (must be accompanied by an adult), and is free on Fridays from 7pm- 9pm. Admission to the McKim rooms is without charge during the following times Tuesdays 3- 5pm; Fridays 7-9pm; and Sundays 4-6pm. Admission is not required to visit the Morgan Shop and Morgan Dining Room.
