On the weekend of April 7, 2018, the Ringwood Manor Association of the Arts (RMAA) in conjunction with Ringwood Manor Park will be offering exclusive small group tours of the historic manor house on the grounds of Ringwood Manor State Park. In keeping with the spirit and mission of the RMAA, the tours will focus on the art collection in the Manor House and be hosted by the Manor curator and historian, Sue Shutte. All proceeds from the tour will go to support the RMAA, a registered 501(c)3 non-profit community art association.
The historic Ringwood Manor served as the summer estate of the Gilded Age industrialist Cooper-Hewitt families and is a National Historic Landmark District. The varied canvas and illustrative Cooper-Hewitt art collection in the Manor House include paintings by 19th-century Hudson River School founder Thomas Cole, important American landscape artist Jasper Cropsey, and landscape and still life artist Martin Johnson Heade.
Two tour sessions will be offered:
Saturday, April 7 – 10:30am
Sunday, April 8 – 1:30pm
The tour cost is $20 with all proceeds going to support the Ringwood Manor Association of the Arts. Tours are limited to 20 people for each session. Due to group size limitations, advance payment is required to reserve your spot.
