Virtual Tour: Highlights of the Collection

Friday, June 2, 2023, 12:30 PM

Join us for a session of close looking at what J. Pierpont Morgan might have described as “A few of his favorite things.” We will explore several objects from our permanent collection, which were highly prized by Mr. Morgan, paying special attention to the bronze statue of Running Eros that was originally displayed in Mr. Morgan’s study, across from his desk.

Please note that the program will take place online. After registering, participants will receive a confirmation email with instructions on how to participate using Zoom. We ask that you download the app in advance for the best user experience.
