Farms Afield: The Met and MoMA

Friday, June 23



Join us for a summer day in the Big Apple! From Craftsman Farms, we’ll travel by chartered bus to The Museum of Modern Art and the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City for exclusive tours made available only to our members!



We’ll first visit MoMA for a tour of the exhibition Frank Lloyd Wright at 150: Unpacking the Archive, led by co-curator Jennifer Gray. Marking Wright’s 150th birthday, this exciting exhibition includes over 400 works and asks new questions about his complex and multifaceted career by unpacking key objects from his archive, including architectural drawings, models, building fragments, print media, furniture, tableware, textiles, and more.

Then we’ll head uptown to The Met for a tour of the Robert A. Ellison Jr. Collection of American Ceramics—newly and beautifully installed on the mezzanine of the American Wing—with Adrienne Spinozzi, whose research on the collection will be the basis for the upcoming publication. The Ellison Collection is quite comprehensive and results in a stunning visual progression of ceramic making in America from 1876 to 1956.
