Where else can you sit on a porch in Manhattan?

Enjoy the arrival of warm weather by joining us at the Open House at Dyckman Farmhouse Museum.

A special feature of the day in the “country” will be local artists working in the plein-air (in the open air) tradition of landscape painting in the garden.

Event Schedule

Artists at Work
11am-4pm
In the late 19th and early 20th century, artists came to Inwood to capture its remaining rural character on canvas. Local artists, including Diane Drescher, Elissa Gore and Bob Bahr, continue that plein-air tradition and will spend the day finding inspiration at the farmhouse.

On the Farm
11am-5pm
Take a self-guided tour of the farmhouse and learn more about the Dyckman family and what living in the country meant in early 19th century New York.

History Play Date: Plein Air Painting
12pm-2pm
Country in the City for Kids! This year for Country in the City, young visitors, ages 6 and up are invited to paint outdoors in the plein-air painting tradition. Stop by anytime between 12 and 2 pm to observe the artists at work and try your hand at watercolor landscapes.
