The New York State Museum will be hosting the exhibition, Tonalism: Pathway from the Hudson River School to Modern Art from February 15 to June 14, 2020. Senior Curator of Art and Culture Karen Quinn will explain what Tonalism is and why this turn-of-the-twentieth-century style was all the rage and then fell out of favor.

This program includes a 20-minute talk followed by brief Q&A. Participants are welcomed to bring their lunches.
