Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis and the Preservation of Our Architectural Treasures
With Deborah Zelcer
We celebrate Women’s History Month with a focus on one of our favorite women. Our beloved Jackie entered the public consciousness as a glamour figure and political wife, who made the Kennedy White House a global symbol of American culture and power. The world watched as she transitioned from wife, mother, and widow, to urbane working woman and preservation advocate. Learn about the very important role that our most unforgettable First Lady played in defining good taste, high culture, and the importance of preserving the livability and distinctive architectural character of American cities.
We will visit buildings associated with her charmed and often not-so-charmed existence, and consider her very important advocacy work in shaping and preserving New York.
