The Morgan Looks Forward to Exciting Paper Arts in 2023!
At the Morgan this winter, we are feeling grateful for our community of supporters after our annual Kozo harvest. The art of papermaking has a long and interesting history that can be traced to ancient China and the bark of the kozo plant over 2,000 years ago. Kozo, also called the paper mulberry plant, is the same type of fiber grown, harvested and, transformed into paper each year at the Morgan. Our Sam Caraboolad Garden is a green oasis tucked into the industrial brick scenery of the Midtown neighborhood. It is the largest kozo grove in the US. We encourage you to attend our kozo harvest next year to experience an integral part of our organization. We are in the midst of the holiday season in our gallery. Our annual Morgan Market will commence on November 22 and run through December 22. The event allows our members exclusive use of our gallery space to sell their handmade works, just before the holiday rush! We have also updated our membership tiers and benefits—if you have been thinking about becoming a member, now is the time! You can learn more about our new membership tiers on our website, morganconservatory.org/membership.
Beginning in the new year, we will offer a robust variety of winter workshops. Our season will include both in-person and virtual programming in all areas of paper, print, and book arts. We are also offering new workshops, including Archival Mounting and Matting Techniques for Works on Paper with Celeste Stauber, Exploring Encaustics with Michaelle Marschall, and virtual Historical Valentines with Stephanie Wolff, among others. To learn more about these and other workshops and to reserve your spot, head over to morganconservatroy.org/allworkshops.
