An event every day that begins at 11:00 am, repeating until March 27, 2022
In Naturally Beautiful: Uncovering Nature in the Nineteenth-Century Home, Homewood Museum mines its impressive collection of decorative arts to explore how environmental factors shaped tastes and trends in home furnishings in the early American republic. From mahogany furniture that resulted in mass deforestation to lithographs that celebrated the new nation’s natural splendor, the house-wide exhibition reveals early Americans’ complex relationship to their environment and Baltimore’s role as a bustling port of trade and taste-making city. On view September 23, 2021 – March 27, 2022.
