Take a guided tour with a curator-trained docent at the New York Historical Society. Tour the “Editors of LIFE”-the first magazine to tell stories with photographs rather than text-the camera was not merely a reporter, but also a potent commentator. For decades, American saw the world through the lens of the magazine’s photographers. During the 1930’s to the early 1970’s LIFE kept only six women photographers on staff. Then experience our collection of the Tiffany lamps-one of the world’s largest and most encyclopedic-in a dazzling new two-story gallery. See more than 100 examples of the elegant American art form and hear the personal stories of head designer Clara Driscoll and her team in the Glassmaking Department known as the “Tiffany Girls”, whose contributions were nearly lost to history. After the tour, enjoy a delicious 3-course luncheon. Includes: Motorcoach, admission, guided tour & luncheon
