    Ticket includes a reception with wine and light hors d'oeuvres. Limited space; advance registration is strongly recommended.

    Throughout the fall and winter of 2018/2019, a team of craftsmen worked with painstaking precision to restore Evergreen's 1905 Tiffany glass and wrought-iron canopy. With work now complete, hear what it took to reinvigorate this Beaux Arts beauty from the master craftsmen responsible: Steve Dykstra and Lee Badger of Anvil Works, a custom metalworking firm based in West Virginia, and Mark Forrest West a Baltimore-based artist who specializes in antiques, historic design, and restoration. The illustrated talk will include a trip outside to see the canopy in person. A reception with the speakers will follow the talk.

    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 Wu 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.
