Romy Silver-Kohn will lead a lecture on Thursday, Jan. 18 that gives attendees a peek inside an unreleased book about the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Sculpture Garden.

The Wise Wonderful Women luncheon lecture series will host Romy Silver-Kohn as its next guest speaker on Thursday, Jan. 18 from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at the Madison Community House on 25 Cook Ave. 

Silver-Kohn, a research assistant at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City, will offer an inside look at the evolution of one of the museum’s most famous spaces through the not-yet-released book “The Gallery Outside—the History of the Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Sculpture Garden at MoMA.”

Silver-Kohn was selected by museum trustees to supervise the production of this volume, which chronicles the garden’s many years in New York City. Publication is set for 2019, when the museum celebrates its 90th anniversary.
