Tucked away on the sixth floor of The General Society of Mechanics and Tradesmen, the Institute of Classical Architecture & Art Cast Hall displays a collection of historical plaster casts of Classical and Renaissance architecture, as well as sculpture, alongside fragments of historical woodwork from significant buildings and country houses in the United Kingdom. The Cast Hall at the Institute of Classical Architecture & Art is a gem of 19th-century New York City’s art collecting past. Filled with plaster casts originally owned by The Metropolitan Museum of Art, the gallery now plays host to scores of visitors, ranging from students to practicing artists. Visit the Cast Hall for open sketching and to learn about this historic art practice and collection. Half-hour gallery talks with the curator will be held at 11:30am, 1:30pm, and 3:30pm.
