Anarchist’s Guide to Historic House Museums: A Book Talk

« All Events

Join Franklin Vagnone, Principal of Twisted Preservation: Cultural Consulting and co-author with University of North Carolina Architecture & Urban Design professor Deborah Ryan as they discuss their renegade tactics that have yielded a sold-out book (in its third printing, and chosen as the #1 museum-education related book in 2015 by the Museum Educator Monitor!) and become a manifesto for touring aficionados. A seminal text on historic house museums, Anarchist’s Guide incites museum professionals to break the rules in order to stem eroding visitorship, engage adjacent communities,  & enlist these properties as protagonists for social programs. Their unorthodox methods aim to introduce preservation to new audiences, and save historic houses in the process.

Tuesday, May 10th
6:30 p.m.

Free and open to the public, RSVP required

Presented in partnership with the New York Landmarks Conservancy and Landmark West!
