Holiday Party & Annual General Meeting
Central Park Arsenal, 830 Fifth Avenue at East 64th Street

One of our most popular annual traditions, this year's annual meeting will take place at the Arsenal, the historic venue of our annual Preservation Award. Join your fellow Georgians for drinks, bites, and good cheer as we elect the Board for the coming year.

One of two buildings within Central Park that predates the Park itself, the Arsenal was built between 1847 and 1851 as a weapons supply depot for New York State's National Guard. Over the years, it's had a number of uses, including a police precinct, a weather bureau, and the first Museum of Natural History. In the lobby, 1930s Works Progress Administration murals depict 19th-century Central Park and soldiers in formation. The Arsenal was designated an official New York City landmark in 1967. Today, it's home to the headquarters of NYC Parks and the Central Park Zoo. It's also home to the Arsenal Gallery, where several fine art and photography exhibitions are mounted each year.

Rescheduled to March, 2023
The American Friends of the Georgian Group and The Colonial Dames of America Present Inessential Colors: Architecture on Paper in Early Modern Europe
Colonial Dames of America, Abigail Adams Smith Auditorium
417 East 61st Street

Basile Baudez, Assistant Professor of Art and Archaeology at Princeton University, will present his latest book, Inessential Colors: Architecture on Paper in Early Modern Europe (Princeton University Press, 2021) with an illustrated talk. In Inessential Colors, which has been shortlisted for the Alice Davis Hitchcock Medallion, Baudez traces the use of color in European architectural drawings and prints, revealing how this phenomenon reflected the professional anxieties of an emerging professional practice that was simultaneously art and science. Baudez questions the role of color in Western architectural representation from the Renaissance to the nineteenth century under the concepts of imitation, convention, and affect. He argues that color is only used by architects at moments when their trade comes closer to either the cartographic world of engineers or the picturesque realm of painters. Basile Baudez specializes in eighteenth- and nineteenth-century European architecture. He has curated exhibitions on architectural drawings at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris and the Courtauld Institute of Art in London. Copies of Inessential Colors will be available for purchase.
