1791 Club: Masterful Paper

The museum wants to work closer with 21-40somethings who are looking to engage with local art + history. Activities with the 1791 Club will take place on the second Wednesdays of each month.

Diane Shewchuk, Albany Institute of History & Art Curator

This behind-the-scenes presentation will give you an “inside” look at our special 225th Anniversary Masterworks: Paper exhibition. Due to their sensitivity to light, these items are rarely seen. Spanning three centuries, the maps, manuscripts and books in the exhibition are joined by two and three-dimensional items including  a paper-mache sewing box and more.  Learn about who used them, how they came to the Institute and how they are being preserved.
