The 2020 Summer Party... REIMAGINED

This year, the Thomas Cole National Historic SiteĀ invites you to reconnect to this resilient, creative, and passionate community by enjoying a special picnic, custom-designed by Geoff Howell Studios, and sent to your home. While enjoying your picnic from the safety of your own home, we will come together for a live virtual private event with toasts by Lisa Fox Martin and Betsy Jacks, a special lecture by Tim Barringer, Paul Mellon Professor in the History of Art at Yale University, and a fireworks display. Please visit for more information.
