    The Carrolls & Colonial Annapolis Day Trip
    April 29, 2019  |  8:30 AM5:30 PM


    Location: Homewood Museum Price: $65 for JHU Museums Members; $75 General Admission Purchase Tickets

    Please register at homewoodmuseum.eventbrite.com or by calling Homewood Museum: 410.516.5589.

    Join Homewood Museum's director and curator Julie Rose and assistant curator Michelle Fitzgerald as they explore the Carroll family's roots in Colonial Annapolis.

    The day will start with a visit to the Maryland State House, the oldest U.S. state capitol in continuous legislative use and where Charles Carroll of Carrollton—an eventual signer of the Declaration of Independence—served in the state Senate from 1781 to 1800.

    After the State House, attendees will walk one block to Treaty of Paris restaurant for a buffet lunch of Chesapeake favorites.

    Next will be a tour of the Charles Carroll House and Gardens of Annapolis, where Charles Carroll of Carrollton was born and lived, and where his son, Charles Carroll of Homewood, is buried. This house is also the likely birth site of William Ross, an enslaved waiting man who attended to Charles Carroll of Homewood. The day will conclude with a tour and tea of Brown's Tavern at Historic London Town & Gardens, a circa 1760s tavern at the center of a once-bustling Colonial tobacco port on the banks of the South River.

    The price includes round-trip transportation, admission, and lunch.

    The bus will depart promptly from Evergreen Museum & Library at 8:30 a.m. and return by 5:30 p.m. (traffic may affect these times). Attendees are encouraged to wear comfortable shoes as walking will be required.

    Please register at evergreenmuseum.eventbrite.com or by calling 410.516.0341.

    Join Evergreen Museum & Library for a special day trip to Glenstone Museum. Located in Potomac, Maryland, this private museum—open by appointment only—houses the modern and contemporary art collection of billionaire industrialist Mitchell P. Rales and his wife, Emily Wei Rales. The museum opened as a single building on 100 acres in 2006 but just completed a major renovation that more than doubled the campus' acreage and quintupled the museum's gallery space. Throughout its campus, Glenstone features more than 1,300 works by post-WWII masters including Willem de Kooning, Jackson Pollock, Jasper Johns, Mark Rothko, Cy Twombly, Alexander Calder, and Ruth Asawa. Come explore this unique museum that the Washington Post calls "quietly spectacular."

    The price includes roundtrip transportation, admission, and lunch at Normandie Farm Restaurant.

    The bus will depart promptly from Evergreen Museum & Library at 9 a.m. and return by 4:30 p.m. (traffic may affect these times). Attendees are encouraged to wear comfortable shoes as walking will be required.

    TO Sep 8
    Fantasia Reimagined: Don Joint & Evergreen's Meissen Garden
    May 11, 2019September 8, 2019
    Location: Evergreen Museum & Library Price: Free with regular admission; $3 for exhibition only

    Evergreen Museum & Library is open Tuesday-Friday, 11 a.m.-4 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday, noon-4 p.m. Closed Mondays. For group tours or more information, contact the museum at 410-516-0341. 

    Artist Don Joint celebrates the many figurines of German porcelain collected by two generations of Evergreen’s Garrett family in this special exhibition that juxtaposes objects from the museum’s collection with his own large-scale glass mosaic. The intricate patterns of Joint's mosaics both echo and diverge from the sprightly eighteenth- and nineteenth-century figurines produced by the Meissen company, prompting visitors to reconsider these objects that are so often dismissed as kitsch.
