What do you do when your beloved cat or dog dies? For some, cremations, monuments and burials for their animals are as important as those of themselves and family members.  The first American pet burial ground started in 1896, which came to be known as The Hartsdale Pet Cemetery, located in Westchester County, New York. (Hartsdale, New York). Pets have always met our needs for security, protection, sporting and hunting abilities, and companionship. In our society people are electing to have fewer or no children, and have longer life expectancies with or without partners and extended family
units. People are forming closer, longer relationships with companion animals; they are "part of the family". We'll look at changing practices and trends in the culture of pets and death.

Elizabeth Broman is a cemetery historian specializing in 18th and 19th century funerary art and architecture. Having lived next to Green-Wood Cemetery all her life, she wrote her MA thesis on "Egyptian Revival Funerary Art & Architecture in Green-Wood Cemetery". She works as an art reference librarian at the Cooper Hewitt Smithsonian National Design Museum in New York. She is a longtime member and on the Board of the Association for Gravestone Studies, and a member of the Death in American Culture and Cemeteries and Gravemarkers sections of the Popular/Material Culture Associations. Elizabeth has been a cat lover all her life and has 3 cats and regularly does TNR (Trap, Neuter, Return) work around Sunset Park.

Tickets are non-refundable unless the event is canceled.
