Educator Evening: Cultivating Culture: 34 Institutions that Changed New York

Explore the exhibition and find curriculum connections on this free guided tour for educators.

New York City’s Cultural Institution Group is an unparalleled public-private initiative dating back to the 19th century. Today, it provides City support to 34 institutions across the five boroughs that help cement New York’s status as the cultural capital of the world. This robust public investment in diverse private non-profit organizations – ranging from the Museum of the City of New York and The Public Theater to the Brooklyn Museum, the Queens Botanical Garden, the Staten Island Museum, and the Wildlife Conservation Society – provides the city with a bounty of cultural and educational options. 

Cultivating Culture will tell these institutions’ stories through original imagery and objects, including founding charters, tickets and ephemera related to opening night performances, and other original artifacts that bring the history of the city’s cultural riches to life.

Free. 1 CTLE hour.
