Lecture series, tours at Thomas Cole site

On Feb. 4,  2 to 3 p.m., “In the Footsteps of Thomas Cole” is the topic of a Sunday Salons  lecture series  at the Thomas Cole National Historic Site, 218 Spring St., 
Catskill. The monthly events featuring speakers who discuss topics related to the Hudson River School are offered on Sundays at 2 p.m. through March.

Presented by Shannon Vittoria, Ph.D., research associate in the American Wing at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, the talk will explore the behind-the-scenes research conducted by the curatorial team for the exhibition, Thomas Cole’s Journey: Atlantic Crossings.  The research team followed in Cole’s footsteps traveling to England and Italy to research his youth in Bolton and his return journey to London, Florence, Rome, Tivoli and Naples from 1829-1832.
Tickets are $12, general admission; $10, seniors and veterans; free, members.

 The Sunday Salons topics related to the Hudson River School are  held  in the New Studio, which Cole himself designed. 

Special Winter Tours are offered on the first Sunday of the month from January through March on the same days as the Sunday Salon lectures. Visitors will join a guided tour with a Cole site educator to explore the 1815 Main House where Thomas Cole lived and worked. The experience features the multimedia installation The Parlors and the exhibition Thomas Cole’s Creative Process which includes original works by the artist. Tours begin promptly on the front porch of the Main House at 1 p.m. and 3:30 p.m. on  Feb. 4 and March 4. Each tour is limited to 12 people and lasts approximately 50 minutes.
