Morgan Bookmarks: All-Ages Conversation

Explore the museum from home with a live interactive tour. Each program will take a closer look at objects in the Morgan’s Collection Online, ranging from ancient to modern. Participants will receive a creative prompt with each experience, for inspiration to write, read, or craft at home.

On Tuesday, December 1: A Morgan Confection

For the final Morgan Bookmarks of 2020, the program celebrates the different curatorial departments of the Morgan with a seasonal choice from each collection. Participants will explore images of celebration and merriment from Mesopotamian beer quaffing, to medieval baking, to the recent bequest of Nutcracker illustrations from the estate of illustrator Maurice Sendak. Learn more about the marvelous variety of our collection as we say farewell to 2020.
