    Becoming Buckland: Rediscovering One of America's Earliest Architects

     

    The beautiful Hammond-Harwood House in Annapolis is a masterpiece of skilled craftsmanship and elegant Palladian design. But up until the early twentieth century, the name of its architect had been lost to time. It was only after 1924 that scholars realized that the house could be credited to William Buckland, a man whose name had faded into obscurity. Now, thanks to detailed scholarship, Hammond-Harwood House Curator and Assistant Director Rachel Lovett will discuss Buckland's brief but eventful life, from his birth in Oxford, England, in 1734, to his indenture at George Mason’s Gunston’s Hall, to his time as the architect of choice for the elite of Virginia and Annapolis.

     

    5 p.m. Reception at Homewood Museum
    6 p.m. Lecture in Mergenthaler Hall, Room 111

    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.
