Predating both Central Park and Prospect Park, Green-Wood Cemetery was one of the most important public green spaces in 19th-century America. This exhibit marks the 175th anniversary of this significant national landmark, exploring how its carefully constructed bucolic landscape reflected changing notions not only of death but of nature, and how Green-wood helped to inaugurate a rising trend of so-called rural cemeteries and public parks.

Venue Description: Open 7 days a week, 10am-6pm. $10; $6, seniors/students; free, 12 & under.
