New York magazine writes of the Hispanic Society: "Founded in 1904, this free museum of Spanish, Portuguese, Latin American and Filipino art, artifacts and books, is often overlookedmost likely due to its out-of-the-way, upper Manhattan location. The omission is unfortunate, considering the beauty of the Beaux-Arts building on stately Audubon Terrace, and the mastery of the works inside. The entrance leads to an interior Renaissance-style patio, decorated with terracotta tiles and illuminated by a skylight. An adjacent room displays wall-to-wall commissioned paintings by the 19th-20th century artist Joaquin Sorolla y Bastida, depicting scenes of Spanish life. Upstairs, the main gallery holds works by artists from the 16th century forward, most notably several pieces each by Diego Velázquez (Portrait of a Little Girl) and Francisco Goya (The Duchess of Alba). Bronze Age antiquities, Hispano-Moresque lusterware and ornate liturgical vestments are prominent among the museum's collection of textiles, decorative arts and sculpture."


The collections of the Hispanic Society are unparalleled in their scope and quality outside the Iberian Peninsula, addressing nearly every aspect of culture in Spain, as well as a large part of Portugal and Latin America, through the twentieth century. Seize this opportunity to explore a gorgeous institution in Upper Manhattan.All are welcome. Attendees are warmly invited to include friends and family members. 


Early registration (by July 16th, 2010) is strongly encouraged. The available number of tickets is strictly limited. 


LOCATION: Hispanic Society of America, 613 West 155th Street (entrance on Broadway between 155th & 156th Streets)
