#537 In the field: Art in New York, New York!

Last night, Trish and I returned from an exciting, art-filled trip to New York. 

 The itinerary included the annual National Sculpture Society Celebration at the Century Club;  the presentation of the Medal of Honor for Achievement in Film - honoring Ellen Burstyn at the National Arts Club;  a guided tour of the Morgan Library with NSS members, guests, and patrons;  a visit to Conner- Rosenkranz Galleries to see sculpture and drawings with Robin Salmon -  the Curator of  Sculpture at Brookgreen Gardens who introduced me to the extraordinary art dealer - Joel Rosenkranz;  and a visit to the Frick Museum to see sculptures by Houdon and Clodion and to view
Renaissance and Baroque bronzes from the Hill Collection.  

Below, are images, notes, and memories of an unforgettable experience in New York.
