Educator Evening: A City for Corduroy
The adventures of Corduroy, the stuffed bear in green overalls, have been delighting children and adults for half a century—ever since Don Freeman's children's classic was published in 1968.
But few know about Freeman's long career as an artist who documented New York.
Join curator Morgen Stevens-Garmon for a guided tour of the exhibition A City for Corduroy: Don Freeman's New York. See Freeman's lively and humane depictions of ordinary New Yorkers and the city in the 1930s, his illustrated scenes of the Broadway backstage, and his children's books inspired by the city, including not just the Corduroy books but also Pet at the Met and Hattie the Backstage Bat.
Venue: Museum of the City of New York
