Upcoming Events At Homewood

    TO Jan 9
    Baltimore Immigration in the Carroll Era
    August 28, 2019January 9, 2020
    Location: Homewood Museum Price: Free with regular admission

    This focus exhibition uses objects from Homewood's collections to acknowledge the different cultural groups that were living in Baltimore in the early 19th century, during the period the Carrolls were in residence at Homewood. Encompassing objects as disparate as German stoneware, Chinese porcelain, a hammered silver seder plate, and copper alloy manilla (ankle bracelets used as currency from the Nuna Tribe of West Africa), the exhibition endeavors to represent the varied inhabitants of early Baltimore and encourage reflection on the city's continued diversity. 

    An interactive iPad display also allows visitors to learn how the objects were manufactured.

     


    This exhibition was curated by David Donald and Tehya DelGardio-Lawrence, rising seniors at Baltimore School for the Arts, who interned at Homewood Museum during the summer of 2019 through the Bloomberg Arts Internship. Donald and DelGardio-Lawrence were supervised by Kamil Perrussel, Homewood Museum's 2019 Pinkard-Bolton Intern 

  • Sep 17
    TO Jan 9
    Subject V. Citizen: Maryland's Loyalists
    September 17, 2019January 9, 2020
    Location: Homewood Museum Price: Included with paid museum admission and on view as part of the guided tour, or $3 for the exhibition only

    The Carroll family of Maryland were passionate supporters of American freedom. Charles Carroll of Carrollton was even one of the signers of the Declaration of Independence. But who were the Carrolls’ opponents, and what motivated them to remain loyal to the crown?

     

    For the first time in Maryland history, Homewood Museum presents an exhibition exclusively focused on loyalists. Highlighting a rare portrait of Colonial governor Horatio Sharpe from the Johns Hopkins University collection, this exhibition will challenge the classic narratives of American and Maryland history and encourage visitors to consider the perspectives of loyalists who ranged from governors and the urban elite to indentured servants and enslaved people.

     


    Please join us Wednesday, September 25, 5:30-7:30 p.m. for an opening night reception and talk with historian Glenn E. Campbell of Historic Annapolis. For more information and to purchase tickets, click here.
