From musical programs to monument-making workshops; tree-pruning classes to art installations, Green-Wood turns learning into enlightenment.
Green-Wood’s historical holdings of artifacts and archives are a treasure trove for family researchers, genealogists, and New York historians alike.
Across its core feature categories of art, history, and nature, Green-Wood sustains a deep and abiding commitment to preservation and restoration.
On September 12, 2018, the Eleventh Annual DeWitt Clinton Award for Excellence went to Jamie Bernstein, Alexander Bernstein, and Nina Bernstein Simmons on the occasion of the centennial of the birth of their father, Leonard Bernstein. Indelibly imprinted with the energy and musicality of their legendary father and the theatricality and activism of their mother, Felicia Cohn Monteleagre, the three siblings carry the Bernstein spirit and legacy into the twenty-first century.
The evening began with music by Sweet Megg and the Wayfarers, including selections from West Side Story. Remarks were made by Green-Wood President Richard Moylan and Green-Wood trustees Allie Sweeney and Scot Medbury, who presented on Green-Wood’s bold vision for the future. The awardees were introduced by Kurt Anderson, and the award was presented by Green-Wood Chairman, Payson Coleman.
