Join a Boston Athenæum docent for a discussion-based exploration of "New England on Paper: Contemporary Art in the Boston Athenæum's Prints & Photographs Collections" to discover a range of artistic responses to New England's varied landscapes, built environments, and communities.
Gallery talks are limited to 10 participants on a first-come, first-served basis.
Registration is not required.
The Athenæum's five galleried floors overlook the peaceful Granary Burying Ground, and, as Gamaliel Bradford wrote in 1931, "it is safe to say that [no library] anywhere has more an atmosphere of its own, that none is more conducive to intellectual aspiration and spiritual peace." The building was designated as a National Historic Landmark in 1966.
