Spring 2011 Friends Preview - Celebrating 100 Years
What do Charlotte Brontë's writing desk, Andy Warhol's Flash, and Ernest Hemingway's handritten Nobel Prize acceptance speech have in common? They're all in Celebrating 100 Years, which commemorates the Centennial of the Stephen A. Schwarzman building. The exhibition features more than 200 items from NYPL's collection and offers insights into the ways in which curators and staff have boldly collected throughout the Library's history.
Guided tours of the exhibition will be offered every hour on the half-hour, 12:30 p.m. through 5:30 p.m.
Invitations, which admit four, were mailed in late March. Event will be from 11:30 a.m. to 6 p.m.
