Opening Reception: “The United States: Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow”
July 1 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm| $5
The City Reliquary proudly presents, in partnership with the New York Chapter of the SS United States Conservancy, The United States: Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow. This exhibition in the Reliquary front room celebrates the extraordinary career of the luxury liner known as “America’s Flagship” and her relationship with the City of New York.
The opening event on Saturday, July 1 at 7 PM will commemorate the 65th Anniversary of SS United States’ record-breaking Maiden Voyage. There will be an 8 PM screening in the garden of the film “Colossus On The River” (1965; Runtime: 15 min.). Beverages available by suggested donation, with beer courtesy of The Brooklyn Brewery and a specialty cocktail courtesy of Montauk Rum.
This show will trace the life of the ship, from young speed queen and popular cover girl to aging star of yesteryear and nearly forgotten “has-been,” and finally–with your help–to one of the great comeback stories in U.S. history.
