Stephen M. Brewer Theater at Old Sturbridge Village
Join us for a lecture on Saturday, August 11th at 11:00 am in the Stephen M. Brewer Theater located inside the Visitor Center to explore rarely-seen objects from the Village’s Museum Collection.
An architectural assemblage featuring an attic window, two side lights, and a transom featuring Henry Clay cup plates will be the subject of a lecture led by American glass expert Jeffrey S. Evans. Presented in conjunction with his recent Antiques and Fine Art article, “Important American Glass Architectural Elements in the Collection of Old Sturbridge Village,” Evans will further reveal the dynamic story behind these objects as they traveled from a home in Somers, Connecticut to Village Founder A.B. Wells’ Southbridge, Massachusetts mansion and finally to the Museum Collection of Old Sturbridge Village. Evans will also situate the windows into the broader narrative of New England glass production in the 19th century.
The windows will be on view in the Theater for discussion and up-close examination by Evans and our Curators.
Price for the lecture is included in Village admission.
