Mount Vernon Hotel Museum and Garden
Log Number: IGSM-246044-OMS-20
The Mount Vernon Hotel Museum and Garden will implement a comprehensive program of free community workshops and Spanish-language museum tours. The project is designed to expand the museum's reach and increase engagement with its East Harlem neighborhood and New York city's Latino population. The museum will hold 10 workshops at community partners' locations, at which staff will offer an introduction to the museum. Participants will attend a Spanish-language tour of the museum during one Saturday each month. Each tour will have a theme that will highlight Latin American and Caribbean influences on 19th century New York City.
