Gift of Lou and Barbara Grumet
Baltimore Carver Pat Harris was asked to create a cane with Liza Minnelli as the handle. The idea was to highlight Liza's identification with the song "New York, New York," and also to celebrate her as a Broadway performer.
Due to ongoing research, information about this object is subject to change.
