We are pleased to invite Brick & Wonder Pro & Council members to a private tour of the Manitoga Residence and Russel Wright Design Center, on Friday May 9th 2024.
Located in Garrison, New York, approximately one hour north of New York City, Manitoga is the former home and 75-acre woodland garden of American industrial designer Russel Wright (1904-1976), envisioned with his wife Mary Einstein Wright (d. 1952) for their family. Manitoga is a National Historic Landmark, an Affiliate Site of the National Trust for Historic Preservation, and one of the few 20th-century modern homes with original landscape open to the public.
In 2021, the Russel & Mary Wright Design Gallery opened to the public, offering a permanent onsite display of the Wrights’ groundbreaking designs for the American home.
Manitoga/The Russel Wright Design Center stewards Manitoga as the embodiment of the Wright’s design philosophy and life work and celebrates good design for living in creative harmony with nature through tours, programs, events, and free year-round access to woodland trails.

We are thrilled to offer Brick & Wonder Pro and Council members a private tour of one of New York’s most sensational new buildings – the Perelman Performing Arts Center.
The creation of a performing arts center is a key component of the 2003 Master Plan developed by the Lower Manhattan Development Corporation to rebuild the 16-acre World Trade Center campus.
Perelman Performing Arts Center (PAC NYC) is a 129,000 square foot building on multiple levels. The performance space offers flexible layouts in three theater spaces that can be combined to provide dozens of seating configurations, and the lobby level includes a restaurant, bar, terrace, and stage open to the public.
PAC NYC has three flexible, intimate performance spaces. Automated walls and flexible seating systems enable numerous configurations that create a range of unique experiences for audiences and artists.
The tour will be generously facilitated by Sean Michael Cummings, PAC’s Director of Individual Giving, and led by direct project collaborators sharing their first-hand experiences working on the building.
