After lunch at the Johns Hopkins Club and a keynote talk by furniture scholar and antiques dealer Sumpter Priddy III, attendees will participate in two furniture workshops: “Deconstructing Baltimore Furniture” and “Looking Toward the Backcountry” with Michelle Fitzgerald, Assistant Curator of Homewood Museum, and Nick Powers, Collections Curator at the Museum of the Shenandoah Valley.

    Decorated for the holidays, Homewood exudes a festive spirit that is best witnessed at the museum’s annual Homewood by Candlelight open house.
