The Morgan Library and Museum, a New York City treasure located near both Penn Station and Grand Central Station, was once the private library of financier Pierpont Morgan, one of the preeminent collectors and cultural benefactors in the United States. In addition to their impressive collection of illuminated, literary, and historical manuscripts; early printed books; and old master drawings and prints; the Morgan hosts other wonderful programs such as the current “Drawing Surrealism” exhibition. The venue’s Renzo Piano expansion creates a current feel to this historic landmark.
Only blocks from the Morgan Library is the Andaz 5th Avenue, which also has a library space. The Flag Art Foundation has been fortunate to have a piece by one of the painters we work with, Lesley Vance—who exhibited at FLAG this past fall—on display there for the public.
