    Take a break from the day and get an in-depth look at some fascinating objects from the vaults of the Brooklyn Historical Society with a new lunchtime series.

    Launched last week, “Bite Size History” brings curators, historians and other experts together to provide insight into the vast collections of BHS. In this week’s edition, BHS historian Nalleli Guillen and BHS Trustee and art historian Linda Ferber will reveal the story behind a 19th century portrait of Brooklyn poet Bloodgood H. Cutter.

    The conversation takes place via Zoom on Friday, May 29 at 12:30 p.m. It’s free but online registration is required for login information. Future editions are described on the BHS calendar.
