Bloomingdale Neighborhood History Group Presents a Talk on January 23rd
The beloved BNHG is at it again with another full season of talks. On Monday, January 23rd at 6:30 p.m. come out and hear neighbor Jim Mackin talk about the often-missed sculptures around our streets. Audrey Munson, who posed for the memorial in Straus Park depicted below, is someone I've called an endlessly fascinating Beaux Arts muse. Because she was! She was the subject of two prior blog posts here and here -- the latter is where I posted a whole gallery of sculptures for which she posed, worth checking out to see the breadth of artists who were inspired by her. She's literally all over town.
I feel certain Jim will cover vignettes about Audrey's long, amazing and yet sad life.
Come on out on the 23rd. Details below!
