Event description

Description

Would you like to start your morning with some coffee, pastries, and a dash of American history? Then join us the first Friday of every month for our new Coffee with a Curator series! Every month the DAR Museum curators will highlight different objects in our Study Gallery collection, providing insights, pointing out significant details, and answering questions. This unique, informal environment provides the opportunity for in-depth, intimate conversations with curators about objects within their specialty.

In order to facilitate meaningful conversation and close-looking, this program is capped at 15 attendees. Tickets are FREE, but please register in advance to secure your spot! Coffee, tea, and pastries provided for all program participants.

This month, join William Strollo, Curator of Exhibitions, in conversation about American portraitists in the DAR Museum collection, specifically the works of James Eichholtz, Thomas Sully, and James Peale. How were these artists connected? What similarities can we observe in their work?

Grab a cup and let’s start the conversation.
