Gallery Sunday, March 5: Domestic Handbooks for “Staging the Table”

The Canton of Whyt Whey and the Crown Province of Ostgardr invite you to join us for a casual weekend outing to one of our many world-class museums.

On Saturday, March 5, at 1 PM, we’ll visit the Bard Graduate Center Gallery (18 W 86th St.) to view their “Staging the Table” exhibit of sixteenth- and seventeenth-century European household manuals describing the proper way to serve and conduct a formal meal, accompanied by examples of table linens and servingware.

Admission is $15. The museum advises booking tickets in advance to ensure availability. (Student, senior, and disability discounts available.)

The venue requires masking and proof of up-to-date Covid vaccination along with matching photo ID. The site is wheelchair-accessible and ADA-compliant.

The visit is expected to take around an hour or so. Some folks may choose to go to lunch in the neighborhood afterwards.

All are welcome to join us. No Society membership or previous experience required. Modern attire. Feel free to RSVP or just show up.
