Interested in history, architecture, or decorative arts? Become a tour guide at Evergreen Museum & Library! The next docent training course will be offered starting April 10, 2017 on four consecutive Monday mornings. Attendance at each session is requested. Volunteers who successfully complete the training will be expected to commit to working a minimum of four hours per month.
Participants will learn how to lead engaging and interactive tours to a variety of individuals, school groups and community organizations from around the world. Docents also assist with the museum’s special programs and foster an appreciation for art, architecture and history in visitors of all ages. Docents are needed on weekends and/or weekdays, and schedules can be created to suit your needs and availability. Evergreen's volunteers join the intellectual life at Johns Hopkins University, with opportunities for additional training, and are invited to social events, openings, lectures, and tours of other historic sites.
Advance registration requested due to limited seating.
A striking carved mahogany sofa in the Homewood Museum collection has been recently identified as the work of Maryland-born artisan William Worthington (1775-1839), who rose to the top of the Washington cabinet trade and secured White House commissions during the Madison, Monroe, and John Quincy Adams administrations.
Join renowned southern furniture scholar Sumpter Priddy for a fascinating discussion about this unparalleled period of government patronage for architecture, sculpture, painting, and the decorative arts in the new Federal City, with an emphasis on Worthington’s workshop and his presidential commissions.
The talk will be followed by a wine-and-cheese reception and an opportunity to view the related small focus installation Federal Seating from Washington, D.C., on view through June 25, 2017.
Formerly associated with Historic Deerfield and Colonial Williamsburg, Sumpter Priddy III now works privately as a consultant to collectors and museums. His book, American Fancy: Exuberance in the Arts, 1790–1840, won Historic New England’s 2005 Book Award.
