HIGHLIGHTS OF THE HILL-STEAD MUSEUM

June 18 @ 11:00 am

Engage in the exploration of history, art, and architecture as you take a virtual tour with the Essex Library of the 1901 Colonial Revival home of the Pope and Riddle families on Friday, June 18 at 11 a.m. Learn about the family as industrialists, world-travelers and art collectors. Hear the stories of their late-1880’s Grand Tour of Europe. Discover the Pope family’s collection of art treasures, most notably the works of Claude Monet, Edgar Degas, Mary Cassatt, James McNeill Whistler, and the many decorative arts that grace this expansive home. Theodate Pope Riddle was one of America’s pioneering women architects; this program presents a memorable look at one of her greatest accomplishments – her family home. With heartfelt thanks to Essex Meadows for sponsoring this Zoom event.
