Spend an afternoon as Victorian women, such as Harriet Stockton might have, and create pressed flower art, surrounded by historic garden, with Morven’s Curator of Education Debra Lampert-Rudman. Learn the “love language” of flowers, enjoy an illustrated PowerPoint on this Victorian art, and create artwork of your own special design suitable for framing. All flowers, materials, and art instruction provided. No previous experience required and space is limited, ages 12 and up. Ticket price includes Museum admission.
Morven is participating in Smithsonian Magazine’s national Museum Day, offering free admission to all Museum Day ticket holders. Tickets are available for the public to download at www.smithsonianmag.com/museumday. Docent-led tours will be offered at 11:00 a.m., noon, 1:00 and 2:00 p.m.
This year’s theme, Year of Music, will be celebrated, in part, with a musical performance from 2:00 to 3:30 p.m. by Generations Baroque Ensemble, whose performers span a half-century in ages and include a 13-year-old recorder musician, violinist, lute/theorbo, harpsichordist and percussionist.
