Weekday Sketchers at American Folk Art Museum Tuesday

Please Note:  The Ford Foundation Atrium is still not open to the public but when it is open it will be on our schedule. 

The American Folk Art Museum across from Lincoln Center is featuring an exhibit a series of large scale architectural models of the Gold Coast castles and forts that served as way stations for more than six million Africans sold into slavery and sent to the Americas and Caribbean in from the 16th -19th century.  Titled "Gates of No Return" these pieces were commissioned and created by Paa Joe, African artist, mostly known for his inventive figurative coffins. 

Also on view are the paintings and carved figures of John Dunkley, noted Jamaican artist. 

Following our drawing session at the museum we will gather in the nearby David Rubinstein Atrium  for lunch and sketching. Bring lunch or purchase something at the restaurant in the atrium.
