"The Schuyler Sisters And Their Circle" At Albany Institute Of History And Art
Made famous by the Tony Award-winning “Hamilton: An American Musical,” the Schuyler sisters, Angelica, Elizabeth, and Margaret (Peggy), were fascinating characters in American history and played significant roles in the life of founding father Alexander Hamilton.
Now, for the first time, there is an exhibition at the Albany Institute of History and Art exploring the Revolutionary world of these women in the sisters’ hometown of Albany, New York. The exhibition, "The Schuyler Sisters & Their Circle" is on view through December 29 and looks at the lives of Angelica Schuyler Church, Elizabeth Schuyler Hamilton, and Margaret Schuyler Van Rensselaer through clothing, decorative arts, portraits, and manuscripts from the Revolutionary Period to the Federal Period.
Albany Institute of History and Art Curator Diane Shewchuk, Albany Institute of History and Art Director of Interpretive Programs Patrick Stenshorn, and Schuyler Mansion State Historic Site Manager Heidi Hill joined us.
