Designing Women: The Colonial Revival at Shelburne Museum

March 3, 2020 @ 5:30pm-7:00pm

$18 – $22

Green Mountain Academy welcomes back associate curator Katie Wood Kirchhoff to talk about the Colonial Revival at Shelburne Museum. This was manifested in the development of a 45-acre campus populated with buildings and objects ranging from hatboxes to furniture, installed in period rooms and galleries meant to inspire visitors to recall a collective colonial past. This talk will survey the relationships between three early Colonial Revival collectors – Shelburne Museum founder Electra Havemeyer Webb and two of her important advisors, Lillian Baker Carlisle and Katherine Prentis Murphy – and investigate the ways that these three intelligent, innovative, head-strong women ultimately shaped larger trends in how we have come to collect, interpret, and understand American antiques and material culture.. Registration is $18 in advance or $22 at the door. For more information or to register, please call our office at 802-867-0111 or visit www.greenmtnacademy.org.
