Events at the Reitz Home Museum

We are pleased that the Reitz Home Museum is showcasing the research of departmental faculty and students and the good work of departmental interns at the museum this semester.

February 9-26.  Antique Valentines are on display at the Reitz Home:  Senior archaeology major Elizabeth Bostelman was one of the curators of this exhibit. 

On February 20, Associate Professor of Art History Heidi Strobel will present "The Art of Mary Linwood" at 7:00 pm in the Carriage House.  This talk is based on Dr. Strobel's research of British textile artist Mary Linwood (1755-1845). 

On March 19, senior archaeology and art history major Leah Thomas will present "The Art of 18th Century Dining" at 7:00 pm in the Carriage House.  This presentation is based on research Leah conducted in summer 2011 while interning at George Washington's Mount Vernon, VA
