Recent Acquisitions: From Teaspoons to Titanic
Since its founding in 1923, the Museum of the City of New York has celebrated and interpreted the city and educated the public about New York’s heritage and distinctive character. From Teaspoons to Titanic: Recent Acquisitions showcases a selection of new additions the museum’s collection, including a deck chair from RMS Titanic, souvenir spoons depicting New York scenes, works by several notable photographers, and Richard Haas’s preparatory paintings for New York street murals—all of which speak to the life of the city. The images featured online here include those works currently on view, as well as other recent acquisitions.
