THE ICMA IS PLEASED TO INVITE MEMBERS, FRIENDS, AND FAMILIES TO AN UPCOMING SPECIAL TOUR OF THE GLENCAIRN MUSEUM (Bryn Athyn, PA).
The spring issue of Gesta features the article “Integrated Pasts: Glencairn Museum and Hammond Castle,” co-authored by Jennifer Borland and Martha Easton.
In this piece, you will learn about two early twentieth-century American collectors of medieval art, Raymond Pitcairn and John Hays Hammond Jr., each of whom housed their collections in elaborate revivalist residences, inspired by medieval art and architecture.
ICMA at the Glencairn Museum
On Saturday, October 27 (please note date change from the previous announcement in the ICMA Newsletter), ICMA members will be welcomed to the Glencairn Museum with Jennifer Borland and Brian Henderson, Director of the museum. The visit will include an intimate guided tour of the Glencairn collections and the extraordinary neo-Gothic Bryn Athyn cathedral.
The Glencairn Museum is in Bryn Athyn, PA, about 45 minutes north of downtown Philadelphia. While participants will be responsible for their own accommodations in the Philadelphia area, the ICMA will organize bus transit between University City, Philadelphia and the Glencairn Museum. Lunch on the premises will be provided.
Space is limited to 30 attendees. Reserve a spot now! Please make your reservation by FRIDAY 5 OCTOBER here: https://goo.gl/forms/TWiqf454l0x6Mhlm1
