High Tea and Lecture: The Bloomsbury Group with Museum Director Charles A. Riley II, PhD
Sunday, June 5
$20 Members, $40 Non-members Includes Museum admission
England’s greatest contribution to Modern art and literature was made by a group of painters, writers and thinkers whose bohemian lifestyle shocked outsiders. At the core were the painters Roger Fry, Duncan Grant and Vanessa Bell along with the novelist Virginia Woolf and the economist John Maynard Keynes. “They lived in squares and loved in triangles,” is the old joke about this endlessly fascinating circle. Join the Museum’s director Charles Riley for high tea followed by a lecture that offers an intimate group portrait in the mansion’s library, where we will be surrounded by their art and books. Scumptious treats generously provided by Diane’s Bakery of Roslyn.
