2024 Regional Meeting: Hill-Stead Museum, Farmington, CT

October 4 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm EDT

The Hill-Stead Museum in Farmington, Connecticut, is known for the collection of French Impressionist paintings formed by Alfred Atmore Pope (1842-1913) and for the museum building itself, designed as a retirement home for her parents by Pope’s daughter, Theodate Pope Riddle (1867-1946), one of America’s first woman architects. AHPCS members are invited to a special tour of the house and its collections at 10:00 on Friday, October 4th, led by Melanie Bourbeau, Senior Curator, with commentary on the American prints provided by AHPCS secretary Nancy Finlay. Following the tour, members will go behind the scenes to view additional American prints in museum storage and to learn how Riddle’s interest in the Colonial Revival was reflected in her own collection of such prints. The meeting will be followed by an optional lunch at a local restaurant.
