    Join your fellow ARLIS/NA New York members for a curator-guided tour of The Awe of the Arctic: A Visual History, on Friday, June 28, at 4:30 PM. The tour will be held at the New York Public Library's flagship location, the Stephen A. Schwarzman Building, and led by exhibition curator Elizabeth Cronin, Robert B. Menschel Curator of Photography.

    This exhibition, drawn almost exclusively from the rich collections of The New York Public Library, is a large, multi-part survey of how the Arctic has been visually depicted, defined, and imagined over the past 500 years, and invites us to consider how this history relates to our current understanding of the Arctic. The presentation ranges from 16th-century explorers who attempted to capture the perceived strangeness of a remote region to contemporary artists whose work conveys the human impact on its changing climate and vulnerable landscape.

    The tour will be capped at 25 participants and registration is limited to members of ARLIS/NA's New York Chapter. We will meet for the tour inside Astor Hall, near the main entrance of the Stephen A. Schwarzman Building.

    If you have any questions about the tour, feel free to reach out to Joey Vincennie, Programming Coordinator at vincennie@frick.org.
