The Schuyler Sisters and Their Circle
On July 23rd, members of the Schuyler Center family attended the special opening day reception for The Schuyler Sisters and Their Circle exhibit at the Albany Institute of History and Art.
The exhibit, which runs through December 29th, features many artifacts from the Schuyler family history, including clothing, personal letters written by Phillip Schuyler and other members of prominent Albany families, artwork, and period dresses. Some of the most notable items in the collection include a lock of Alexander Hamilton’s hair, as well as his and Eliza’s wedding bands.
As a part of the Schuyler family legacy, we were thrilled to see how well-attended the event was. Senator Neil Breslin, father of our President and CEO Kate Breslin, attended the opening, as did Assemblywoman Patricia Fahy, who gave Schuyler Center a shout-out during her speech!
We are honored to be connected to the rich history exhibited by the Albany Institute, especially with Hamilton fever coming to Albany. Take a look below to see our photos of the event, and to see us featured in the Times Union SEEN Events, photos 76, 123 and 143.
