Event description

Description

When the Baltimore-based nonprofit Civic Works relocated 25 years ago to Clifton Mansion, the former summer home of Johns Hopkins, the new tenants found evidence of a large wall mural in what was once the Italianate mansion’s grand entry hall. In April 2017, work began to restore the space, including the 160-year-old mural. Now, almost 18 months later, conservators Thomas Moore, Gillian Quinn, and Laurie A. Timm, will discuss what it took to uncover the 15-by-25-foot painting of the Bay of Naples, and what surprises the mural yielded as they peeled back layer upon layer of the past.

5 p.m. Reception at Homewood Museum
6 p.m. Lecture at Mergenthaler Hall, Room 111

Free event parking will be available in the Johns Hopkins Club parking lot. Advance, pre-paid registration is strongly requested. Walk-in registration is based on seating availability. 1 AIA/CES LU available per lecture.
