The New York Historical Society has a fascinating and informative new exhibit featuring Black Dolls. ‘Black Dolls explores handmade cloth dolls made primarily by African American women between 1850 and 1940 through the lens of race, gender, and history. The exhibition immerses visitors in the world of dolls, doll play, and doll making while examining the formation of racial stereotypes and confronting the persistence of racism in American history.’ The exhibit is on thru June 5th, 2022. I encourage you to visit. For those that like tradition…here is my usual post when we Spring Forward.

A visit to the Metropolitan Museum’s Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Roof Garden through November 4th will allow you to see Argentinian artist Tomás Saraceno ‘s Cloud City.  This installation is fun, spatially disorienting and well worth your time.
