In case you find yourself in NYC between February 9 and July 4, this might be something you'd be interested in checking out.

http://blog.metmuseum.org/guitarheroes/

New York City and nearby New Jersey, Long Island, and Westchester County have been home to a vibrant Italian American population since the late nineteenth century. Within this community, a remarkable tradition of lutherie (stringed-instrument making) has flourished. Italian American craftsmen have produced an enormous variety of musical instruments, from traditional European-style violins, mandolins, and guitars to newer American instruments such as archtop guitars and mandolins and even electric guitars. Since the 1930s, makers from this tradition in the New York region have become especially well known for their extraordinary archtop guitars.

This exhibition examines the work of three remarkable craftsmen from this heritage—John D'Angelico, James D'Aquisto, and John Monteleone—their place in the extended context of Italian and Italian American instrument making, and the inspiration of the sights and sounds of New York City.

Very cool, Jeanne. I always make the 'trip across the park' to visit the Met and have been lucky to visit some great special exhibits. Not making the Beacon trek this year but if I was I know what I'd be doing with one of my days...
