Mr. Morgan’s Summer Soiree at the Morgan Library and Museum

6.25.2014

– The Morgan’s Library and Museum in New York –

The Young Fellows of the Morgan Library & Museum held its annual Summer Soiree on Wednesday, June 25. We were among the hundreds of guests who attended the event and enjoyed a night of hors d’oeuvres, cocktails, and live music beneath the recently unveiled Spencer Finch installation in Gilbert Court. The unforgettable moment was having a glass of wine in Mr. Morgan’s Library and looking through his collection of first edition books and scripts.
