A Beautiful Way to Go: 175th Anniversary Exhibition at the Museum of the City of New York

May 15, 2013


On view May 15th to October 13th

Celebrate the 175th anniversary of this National Historic Landmark. A Beautiful Way To Go: New York’s Green-Wood Cemetery is a brand new exhibit curated and presented by the Museum of the City of New York.

Featuring original artifacts, sculptures, drawings and Hudson River paintings; historic documents; and photographs, the exhibit focuses on several aspects of Green-Wood’s history and imminence – it’s many illustrious permanent residents, the rural cemetery movement that spawned bucolic burial grounds across the nation, and the expert art, architecture and design of Green-Wood’s 478 acres.

The exhibit will also detail what’s ahead for Green-Wood and what the next 175 years will look like at this esteemed landmark.

For more information, visit MCNY Online or call 212-534-1672. The MCNY is located at 1220 Fifth Avenue at 103rd Street in New York City.

Also, on June 1st Green-Wood historian Jeff Richman will lead a members-only tour of the exhibit. Click here for more information about the tour.
