The Scholars’ Dinner

CANCELLED

Monday, April 6, 2020

The Century Association, NYC

UPDATE

Due to growing concerns regarding COVID-19, the Thomas Cole National Historic Site has decided to cancel the Scholars’ Dinner previously scheduled for Monday, April 6, at the Century Association in New York City.  The health of all our supporters, partners, staff, fellows, and volunteers, is our top priority.

The enthusiastic response that we received for this event has been extraordinary, and we are so grateful for this community that is supporting the future of American art. We would like to offer our deepest gratitude and congratulations to the featured scholars we planned to celebrate at this year’s event: Morrison H. Heckscher, Graham C. Boettcher, Shannon Vittoria, and our Class of 2020 Cole Fellows. Thank you for inspiring us all.
