The Morgan recently hosted our annual Spring Family Fair, and I want to thank you, our visitors, for making it a wonderful day!
The Morgan celebrated its annual Spring Family Fair on Sunday, April 15, 2018. Among the activities was a craft session with Azi Amiri, who led students in making paper dragons inspired by the Morgan’s collection of medieval manuscripts.
The Morgan Book Project is an annual extended-learning program open and free to New York City public school teachers who work with grades 3–12.
Born of the commitment to offer the Morgan Library & Museum’s famed collection of medieval and Renaissance manuscripts as a resource to New York City schoolchildren, the Morgan Book Project aims to integrate book arts into Common Core State Standard-based curricula and the Blueprint for Teaching and Learning in the Arts.
Saffron is much more than a pigment, and its many uses can be traced back to the ancient world. Harvested from the crocus sativus, a delicate flower cultivated in places like Greece and Persia (Iran), it appears as a spice, a dye, perfume, and is regularly used in holistic medicine.
Laurie Strickland is a creative professional working in television, film, theater, photography, and voice-overs writing. Her most recent projects were inspired by past visits to the Morgan's galleries to see Charles Dickens's writing on display.
