    Revealing the Artist: Restoring the Bay of Naples Mural at Clifton Mansion 

    When the Baltimore-based nonprofit Civic Works relocated 25 years ago to Clifton Mansion, the former summer home of Johns Hopkins, the new tenants found evidence of a large wall mural in what was the Italianate mansion's grand entry hall. In April 2017, work began to restore the space, including the 160-year-old mural. Now, almost 18 months later, conservators Thomas Moore, Gillian Quinn, and Laurie A. Timm, will discuss what it took to uncover the 15-by-25-foot painting of the Bay of Naples, and what suprises the mural yeilded as they peeled back layer upon layer of the past. 


    5 p.m. Reception at Homewood Museum

    6 p.m. Lecture at Mergenthaler Hall, Room 111

    Both located on the Johns Hopkins Homewood campus.


    This is the third and final part in Homewood Museum's 2018 Baltimore's Great Architecture Lectures, Lost and Found, presented as part of Baltimore Architecture Month. 1 AIA CES learning unit will be available. Series tickets available here



    Free parking for the lecture series is available in the Johns Hopkins Club parking lot (#41 on the campus parking map), accessible from San Martin Drive. Please note that you will need to take a ticket to activate the parking gate, however, the exit gate will be open so the ticket will not need to be validated.
