Downtown Manhattan’s public art includes many references to early New York City history and examples abound in the imposing George Washington in front of Federal Hall, the old Customs House featuring Beaux Arts sculptures of the Four Continents that tell tales about America’s sense of identity at the turn of the Century and of course the famous Wall Street bull which can be rubbed for good luck! Similarly, Battery Park is full of thoughtful memorials to our immigrants, and to the fallen heroes of war.  More modern art can also be found throughout the area and we’ll see sculptures by leading artists like Louise Nevelson, Jean Dubuffet, Isamu Noguchi, Keith Haring, Mark di Suvero and many more. This tour with art historian Sylvia Laudien-Meo will also explore the “Canyon of Heroes” along Broadway that honor all the people that have been honored with a ticker tape parade since 1886. Cost: $20 / $15 Members
