PALMAS Tour with artist Melissa McGill / June 20, July 13 & Sept 20 at 1:30pm / Oct 11 at 4:00pm
PALMAS is a site-specific surround sound installation that engages Manitoga's Quarry Pool and encircling path. The work takes its name from the improvised, rhythmic clapping that is an integral part of the tradition of Flamenco. Melissa McGill's exploration of absence and presence, accents and pauses enlivens Manitoga's landscape, playing the Quarry Pool like an instrument.
Experience Palmas as you explore Manitoga's Upper and Lower Quarry Pool paths and discover hidden moments with McGill. House & Studio visit included.
General admission $20; Seniors/Students/National Trust members/Manitoga members $15; and $10 for children under 12.
Visitors meet at Manitoga's Visitor/Guide House next to the parking lot located at 584 Route 9D in Garrison, NY. The guide will arrive just before the tour begins. No pets please.
Located in Garrison, New York, approximately one hour north of New York City, Manitoga is the House, Studio and 75-acre Woodland Garden of American industrial designer Russel Wright (1904-1976) and one of the few 20th century modern homes and landscapes open to the public in New York State. Manitoga is a National Historic Landmark and an Affiliate Site of the National Trust for Historic Preservation.
