Weekday Sketchers at Audubon Plaza and Hispanic Museum Thursday
Inside, outside or across the street, this week we can do it all!
Finally the Hispanic Society, dedicated to the arts of Spain in Washington Heights, has reopened. The museum is located on Audubon Terrace in the Audubon Historic District, which was once the estate of John J. Audubon. Framed by large gates, the terrace is surrounded by Beau Arts Buildings and outdoor sculptures, offering us an opportunity to work on the plaza or inside the building.
Alternatively, cross the street to the Trinity Church Cemetery and sketch the funerary art, or the Audubon Monument, or the beautiful Gothic church itself. Or... just turn around and sketch the apartment buildings decorated with bird murals in honor Audubon himself.
No matter the view you choose, you will go home with wonderful sketches of this unusual corner of Manhattan. BUT, don't miss the opportunity to see the 14 monumental Sorolla paintings of Spanish Life housed in the museum.
Still not enough for you? Go visit the grave site of Ed Koch, one of NYC's most colorful mayors!
