Gallery Outing: Medieval Money at the Morgan, Sunday, March 10

The Canton of Appleholm invites you to join us on an informal weekend outing to one of our many world-class museums.

On Sunday, March 10, at 3 PM, we’ll visit the Morgan’s “Medieval Money, Merchants, and Morality” exhibit, which includes numerous manuscripts, artworks, and artifacts from the late medieval period and into the renaissance. Covering the period in which capitalism emerged and upended the medieval economic system, the exhibit focuses on the cultural and material products created by this transformation, as well as the social and religious forces arrayed against its rise.

The Morgan is located on Madison Avenue between 36th and 37th. The closest trains are the 4/5/6 at 33rd St, the N/Q/R/W and B/D/F/M at 34th St, and the 7 at Bryant Park; there are also numerous bus lines in the area.

We’ll gather outside the front entrance (or in the lobby if the weather is inclement), and then enter as a group. (If you miss us at the entrance, call Mathghamhain at 917-502-7795 to link up inside the museum.)

We’ll probably spend about an hour or so in the museum, and afterwards folks who are hungry may walk a block down Madison to get a snack in a fancy coffee shop.

Museum admission is an exorbitant $25 with discounts for seniors and students. The museum is ADA-accessible. Masks are optional.

All are welcome to join us. No Society membership or previous experience required. Modern attire; come as you are. Feel free to RSVP or just show up. We look forward to seeing you soon!
