A Visit With Lucy Say

Lucy Way Sistare Say was a gifted artist and naturalist and the first woman to be elected a member of the Academy of Natural Sciences (1841).Learn about Lucy’s remarkable artistry, intellect, and her connections to Wyck!

Lucy Say will be interpreted by actress and first person interpreter, Gini Loomis.

The Visit With Lucy Say program is presented at Wyck in honor of Wyck’s own Jane Bowne Haines (1790-1843), who joined organizations promoting education for the poor, prison reform, and the abolition of slavery.  The entire Women’s History Series at Wyck is inspired by the wondrous women of Wyck’s past, to continue their legacy of innovation, education and equality.
