Talk and Tea with the Tsars

Feb

Wednesday, February 20, 2013 1:30 p.m.

Thursday, February 21, 2013 1:30 p.m.

Spend an afternoon at the Cummer Museum of Art & Gardens enjoying our newest exhibition, The Tsars’ Cabinet.  This show presents more than two hundred years of Russian decorative arts, from the time of Peter the Great to the early twentieth century.  Many of the pieces in the exhibition were designed for the public or private use of the tsars and members of the ruling Romanov family.

Join Chief Curator Holly Keris for an afternoon lecture exploring these objects. Tea and light refreshments will be served following the program. Sessions are held on Wednesday, February 20 at 1:30 p.m. and on Thursday, February 21 at 1:30 p.m. Admission is $6.00 for members and non-members. Seating is limited so please make your required reservation by calling Kim Pomar at (904) 899-6038.

The Tsars’ Cabinet is developed from the Kathleen Durdin Collection and is organized by the Muscarelle Museum of Art at the College of William & Mary, Williamsburg, Virginia, in collaboration with International Arts & Artists, Washington, DC.
