Appreciate surrealist women artists with Abbi Jacobson, a star of “Broad City” and the host of the “A Piece of Work” podcast, and Anne Umland, a senior curator at MoMA. As part of the museum’s Virtual Views series, they will cover works by Claude Cahun, Frida Kahlo and Remedios Varo. To prepare, play the exquisite corpse game with your quarantine pals or listen to Ada Limón’s poem, ‘The Mirror & The Ribbon,’ inspired by Kahlo. The discussion is free.

Mix yourself a cocktail and settle in for some graveyard tales at Green-Wood Cemetery’s “History Happy Hour: Hidden Green-Wood.” Attendees will learn about some of the lesser-known graves on the cemetery’s 478 acres — including that of the 19th-century suffragist Elizabeth Tilton, who became embroiled in a scandalous affair with her pastor. Her grave is inscribed with just one word: “Grandmother.” Entry is $9 and includes an appletini recipe.
