Hammond-Harwood House is participating in Maryland’s Day Celebration: Better Together: Diversity-Equity-Inclusion with a virtual presentation of the special exhibition Global Imports in an Early American Port City and an Architecture Quest For All.
Curator Rachel Lovett will give a pre-recorded lecture on the exhibition Decadent Décor: Global Imports in an Early American Port City launching on March 19. This exhibition features the diversity of material goods arriving in the port and the merging of cultures from around the world in early Annapolis. Highlights include a French-made George Washington clock, Spanish silver, British furniture, and Chinese porcelain. Objects are from the collection of the Hammond-Harwood House, as well as from other museums and historic sites.
A special and fun Architecture Quest For All will be available in the front of Hammond-Harwood House for everyone who will be taking a walk on Maryland Avenue starting on March 19.
