George Washington Remembered: An Enduring Legacy in American Decorative Arts

The fifth annual Hammond-Harwood House Collectors’ Day will focus on how the reverence for George Washington influenced American decorative arts in the early nineteenth century. Since the creation of the United States, George Washington has been an iconic figure. Revered during his lifetime for his bravery leading the Continental Army and helping shape American democracy, his popularity has endured to this day.  After his death, commemorative objects helped his countrymen and women to mourn. Prints, jugs, clocks, and other pieces produced with his image adorned the homes of early Americans and several items, like a French-made clock and a porcelain punch bowl, can be found in the Hammond-Harwood House collection. Collectors’ Day will feature two expert scholars, an optional themed Washington tour, and a curated wine and appetizer reception in the garden.


1:30 p.m. Optional tour with the Curator (Limited to 10 participants)
2:15 p.m. Afternoon refreshments in the garden
3:00 p.m. Lectures in the ballroom
5:00 p.m. Curated wine tasting experience & heavy hors d’oeuvres reception with historic sweets and savory recipes in the garden.

For reservations please call 410-263-4683 extension 10.

Tickets include all lectures, food, and curated wine experience. The event capacity will be limited, masks required inside, and the receptions will be held outdoors in the garden.
