SATURDAY: Sketch the Museum of the American Indian

The National Museum of the American Indian
Located in the historic 
Alexander Hamilton U.S. Custom House. 

SATURDAY,  February 9, 2019

Let's sketch the museum’s permanent and temporary exhibitions—as well as a range of public programs, including music and dance performances, films, and symposia—explore the diversity of the Native people of the Americas.

In addition, the building itself is a fantastic Beaux Arts structure with loads of interesting lines and perspective challenges.

Where:  The National Museum of the American Indian–New York, is located on the south side of Bowling Green, in lower Manhattan, adjacent to the northeast corner of Battery Park.

When:  Start time:   10 AM.  Admission if free.  Be aware they have a surprisingly serious security screen including a metal detector

How:  Subway
-  4 & 5 trains to Bowling Green
-  1 train to Rector Street or South Ferry
-  R (& W on weekdays) trains to Whitehall Street
-  J & Z trains to Broad Street
-  2 & 3 trains to Wall Street

Lunch:  Meet in the lobby at noon for a short walk (location to be confirmed on Saturday) to Flavors  - 27 Whitehall St.

Afternoon:  1 PM - Back sketching at the museum

Show and Tell:  3:00 PM - A short walk to (location to be confirmed on Saturday) Murphy’s Tavern at 6 Stone St, (212) 425-1700 where we will share drawings, good stories and a snack or refreshments if you're so inclined.

- Despite the metal detector I’ve brought my sketching stool numerouse times with no problem.  A stool is always a handy item that allows you to sketch from the very best spot.
