Morris-Jumel – ConEd Family and Community Day: Quilting and International Women’s Day

Join us in honoring International Women’s Day at MJM’s Family Day! As quilting has historically been an art practiced mostly by women, we will be creating our own collage where all members of the community can create their own square to contribute. The materials provided to guests who participate will be spring related, as the Morris-Jumel Mansion was originally the summer home in what was then the countryside, outside the hustle and bustle of downtown New York City. With spring around the corner, please join us for Family Day on Saturday, March 9th from 1pm – 3pm.
This program is free and open to the public. All supplies will be provided and available on a first-come, first-served basis. Masks are optional inside the museum.
¡Únase a nosotros para honrar el Día Internacional de la Mujer en el Día de la Familia de MJM! Como históricamente el acolchado ha sido un arte practicado principalmente por mujeres, crearemos nuestro propio collage donde todos los miembros de la comunidad podrán crear su propio cuadrado para contribuir. Los materiales proporcionados a los invitados que participen estarán relacionados con la primavera, ya que la Mansión Morris-Jumel fue originalmente la casa de verano en lo que entonces era el campo, fuera del ajetreo y el bullicio del centro de la ciudad de Nueva York. Con la primavera a la vuelta de la esquina, únase a nosotros para el Día de la Familia el sábado 9 de marzo de 1pm a 3pm.
Este programa es gratis y abierto al público. Todos los suministros se proporcionarán y estarán disponibles por orden de llegada. Las máscaras son opcionales dentro del museo.
