This is a group for those of us who are older, wiser and perhaps a little slower and stiffer than the youngsters who turn out for many of the other meetups. The goal is to provide a variety of activities--something for everyone--so we can make new friends and find adventures together. From movies, museums and meals to bike rides and kayak trips, we'll find ways to connect and support one another. I hope others will step up and join me in planning and organizing events. Let's celebrate our age and experience!
Let's explore the Frick Museum's Maker & Muse jewelry exhibit! The exhibit has been held over, but ends this Sunday the 27th... so we will visit on Friday the 25th!
Maker & Muse at the Frick Museum celebrates the impact of women on the innovative and imaginative jewelry of the early 1900s. Featuring exquisite jewelry by makers such as Louis Comfort Tiffany and Charlotte Newman, this exhibition examines variations in themes, forms, and interests. Women are a significant part of this story, not only as the market for jewelry, but as makers and as inspiration.
You will need to reserve (members) or purchase a TIMED TICKET online in advance for 1:00 pm on Friday the 25th. There are only 14 tickets still available for this time slot, so please purchase or reserve one BEFORE you RSVP. If they sell out, you won't be able to attend even if there are "spots" left on our Meetup page!
If you have difficulty purchasing or reserving your ticket online, you can call Frick at[masked].
Admission is as follows:
We will meet in front of the museum at 12:55. I will be carrying a Meetup sign. You will need to wear a mask and we will try to keep socially distanced throughout the visit.
Stay home if you are sick: If you are sick, experiencing symptoms of COVID-19, or have been exposed to the virus in the 14 days prior to your reservation, please plan to visit at another time. The Frick will be happy to refund or exchange your ticket, no questions asked.
For art preservation reasons, bags larger than 11x15 inches and backpacks are not permitted.
Parking is free and available in the lot next to the museum, or on the nearby street if this is full (it shouldn't be on a weekday though).
