Scarsdale Adult School E-News
August 2021
Armchair Tours and Virtual Visits
Scarsdale Adult School kicks off the new term on Wednesday, September 1, 2021, with Page Knox's museum virtual visit to the Frick Madison (Course 10625), the temporary new home to the Frick's masterpieces while the Frick Collection undergoes renovation. This distinctly modern stone and concrete building is the former site of the Met Breuer and, previously, the Whitney Museum of American Art.

Later that same day, Francis Morrone narrates a virtual tour of the Met's immensely popular exhibit, The Medici: Portraits & Politics, 1512–1570 (Course 10715). The class is suitable as a preview for those who intend to see it in person or as a recap for museum goers who have already had the pleasure of exploring this outstanding assortment of Florentine artwork.

Riva Blumenfeld leads students through Alice Neel: People Come First at the Met (Course 10775) on Tuesday, September 21, 2021, Marking Time: Art In The Age Of Mass Incarceration at MoMA PS1 (Course 10778) on Tuesday, October 19, 2021, and Grief & Grievance: Art And Mourning in America at the New Museum (Course 10774) on Tuesday, November 16, 2021. All three of these major exhibits garnered attention this past year for their exploration of themes of social justice.

Blumenfeld will also offer a Zoom-based version of her tour of Contemporary Galleries of New York City (Course 10776) on Tuesday, October 5, 2021.
Armchair architectural tours this term take students through New York City, San Francisco, Paris, and London.

Anthony Robins explores the Original World Trade Center (Course 10636) on Thursday, September 9, 2021, just two days shy of the twentieth anniversary of the falling of the twin towers. He returns on Wednesday, October 20, 2021, to cover the great skyscrapers and other quintessential buildings that make up the NYC skyline in Art Deco Metropolis (Course 10635).

Rick Evans explores the Secrets of San Francisco's Chinatown (Course 10815) on Wednesday, November 17, 2021. Discover the hidden gems in the streets and back alleys of this famous, enchanting city within a city.
