Curator Tour from Home: The Mystery of Glenview’s Flowers
Update: This live event is over, but check our HRM Exhibitions and Collection page for a recording of the tour, coming soon!
Sunflower or chrysanthemum? That is a question that has fascinated Laura Vookles, Chair of the HRM’s Curatorial Department, for the past decade. Learn about the clues she’s uncovered while researching the decorative flowers that adorn the Museum’s historic home, Glenview, inside and out.
On this virtual tour, Laura will share the evidence with you as you investigate Glenview’s floral motifs together and come to appreciate how the Victorians brought nature indoors through the use of integrated floral design in every room. Become a design detective and see if you agree with her conclusions!
