Join us this THURSDAY as we take a trip across the ocean and across the years to the Hispanic Society in upper Manhattan to see the current exhibit " Gilded Figures: Wood and Clay Made Flesh".  

The Hispanic Society has been closed for the past few years for renovations.  Recently they have opened one small exhibit space for this special exhibit of a rare art form of polychrome figures dating from 1500-1800. These delicate and beautiful figures are carved in wood and decorated with paint and gold leaf.  For more information check out the web site:
