Learn about one of the earliest NYC settlement houses on a tour with ACP Executive Director Adam Welch, formerly of Greenwich House Pottery. Adam led Greenwich House for 17 years and is the unofficial historian of the Settlement House and the Pottery.
Starting with classes as part of a larger handicraft program in 1904, the Pottery officially became a department within Greenwich House in 1909. The teachers, students, and residents that have worked in the Pottery’s classrooms over the years have included such renowned names as Peter Voulkos, Rirkrit Tiravanija, Betty Woodman, Ghada Amer, Ann Agee, Kathy Butterly, Simone Leigh, and David Salle.
We will dine at Michelin Star restaurant, Bar Primi, in the Bowery. Known for excellent Italian-American food, you can expect a delicious twist here and surprise ingredient there. The result is a restaurant we would all love to have just around the corner.
From lunch, our group will head to The Tenement Museum. The Museum celebrates the enduring stories that define and strengthen what it means to be American.
Hear stories of the immigrant and migrant experience through a private guided tour of one of their two tenement buildings on the Lower East Side of Manhattan.
This ACP Roadtrip includes charter bus travel, private tour of Greenwich House Pottery, lunch at a Michelin Star restaurant, and guided tour of the Tenement Museum.
