Presenting ground-breaking research, authors Katherine Kirkpatrick and Vivian Nicholson-Mueller will reveal the names and life stories of the agricultural laborers, domestic workers and musicians who posed for Mount from their book The Art of William Sidney Mount: Long Island People of Color on Canvas. This event will also highlight co-author Vivian Nicholson-Muller who is a descendant of Andrew Brewster, the model who posed for The Bone Player. After a presentation, participants are encouraged to ask questions and are invited to tour the historic Brewster House (c. 1665), owned by the WMHO.
