On Saturday, October 10th, 2009, the ANS will be offering a program on Augustus Saint-Gaudens and his numismatic legacy. The event will feature lectures by Saint-Gaudens experts, study sessions of ANS and loan items by Saint-Gaudens, and a guided tour of the Saint-Gaudens exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Further information will soon be posted here.

This will be the first of a series of weekend seminars on aspects of the ANS collection, at which scholars and collectors will work in small sessions through parts of the ANS collection.

For Saint-Gaudens enthusiasts, please also note that October 8th & 9th, the Metropolitan Museum of Art will be holding a symposium and various tours in conjunction with their exhibit Augustus Saint-Gaudens in The Metropolitan Museum of Art. For more information on this exhibit, click here

Mid-Year Appeal 2009

Like every other institution of its kind, the ANS has suffered losses to its endowment in recent months. Within the library this has meant that we are without a permanent, full-time cataloger.To continue to catalogue and index as we have in the past, we need either to raise funds to employ a permanent cataloguer, or to consider introducing a charge for the use of this valuable resource. A donation of $100 could fund a part-time cataloger for a day, while a $2,000 gift would fund a full month of work. Any donation, however small, will help to sustain this service free of charge to the public.
