Toronto. The Daguerreian Society is excited to share information about the tours that have been arranged for their 30th Symposium in New York City. Please note that tours are booked on a first-come basis.
Given limited availability, each individual is initially limited to a single tour reservation for the New York Public Library on Thursday, September 13th, or Janet Lehr’s collection on Thursday, the 13th or Sunday, the 16th. Jerry Spagnoli’s fundraising studio visit (photo at left) and a drawing for a daguerreian portrait Thursday is open until filled. (NOTE: The formal notice said 12th meaning 13th.)
If tours are not fully booked, they will accept requests for a second reservation as openings are available. The Daguerreian Society will maintain a wait list and notify people on the list to confirm as the tours are filled. To reserve and schedule your tour, please contact Cindy Motzenbecker at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Jerry Spagnoli will host a special studio fundraising tour and demonstration on the afternoon of September 13 (not 12th). The event will be limited to 8 at $100 per person as a donation to the Society. A name will be drawn from a hat to choose the lucky individual who will have their daguerreian portrait made by Jerry. Attendees will be able to watch Jerry make the portrait of the lucky winner. Jerry is generously donating his time and all of the proceeds to The Daguerreian Society.
