Washington Takes Manhattan: Felipe Galindo Feggo’s New York Discoveries’ at Morris Jumel Mansion

Until August 11, 2019

Over the past several decades NEW YORKER cartoonist Feggo has taken the viewer on an unexpected tour of this monumental metropolis from the vantage point of subjects like George Washington, Freda Kahlo, and Mesoamerican gods. The interaction between these historical subjects and the contemporary New York proves amusing and ironic. Washington, who during his tenure in New York during the American Revolution encamped at the Morris – Jumel Mansion, attempts to rationalize 21st century New York experiences, whereas Kahlo snaps selfies while engaging in general tourist activities, and a Toltec god takes a break from the Metropolitan Museum of Art and suns himself in Central Park.

Over 30 of these amusing and poignant images will fill the second-floor museum galleries, and serves to continue the dialog begun in the fall of 2017 when the work of iconic NEW YORKER cartoonist, Charles Addams explored similar Manhattan related themes. Light refreshments will be served. $15, $10 Members/Students.
