Bring your own lunch for a picnic style discussion on the lawn of the museum to learn about the life of Anita Garibaldi and how her indomitable spirit allowed her to fight in wars alongside husband Giuseppe Garibaldi, and lead her family to safety amongst the chaos.

Discussion led by Anna Lise Jensen on her own exhibit "Poetic Action" as well as the topic of supporting green mobility, specifically in the form of a bike / pedestrian lane on the Verrazzano Bridge.

Artist Anthony Santella will also be showing his hand carved boats and will be available to talk to adults and kids alike about wood carving.

GMM Commisioner Bill Castello is also donating a work of art to be auctioned.

See our newly curated Garibaldi Room featuring a special dedication to Anita and her role in the Risorgimento cause.
