New York City offers your educational group a variety of ways to honor notable women.  Highlights are listed below for your school group to enjoy!

(1) Visit the most famous woman of them all, the Statue of Liberty.  A gift of friendship from the people of France to the United States, Lady Liberty is recognized as a universal symbol of freedom and democracy.

(2) The Metropolitan Museum of Art, the largest museum in the Western Hemisphere, has lots to see. Enjoy touring with a docent and your student tour group will view art by women, learn fun facts and often unnoticed details, while gaining a better understanding of art.

(3) Artist, Kristen Visbal’s Fearless Girl statue in Bowling Green Park was commissioned to symbolize the lack of women on Wall Street Boards.  The 50-inch tall, 250 pound bronze statue is set in front of the eleven-foot tall, 7,000 pound iconic Charging-Bull sculpture.

(4) At the Brooklyn Museum, your educational tour group has a full list of events to choose from.  Notably, a special exhibit of works by Georgia O’Keeffe which focuses on her paintings and photographs, as well as her wardrobe and its artistic value.

(5) “Her Story” at the Museum of the City of New York celebrates the history of female artistry and craftsmanship.  Student tours experience hands-on  events, diving into crafts such as quilting, screen printing and storytelling.
