SHREWSBURY: MEET GEORGE WASHINGTON
February 16, 2:00 pm to 3:00 pm
Celebrate President’s Day with an informative art-filled lecture on George Washington, the Father of Our Country. Presented by art historian Michael Norris of Armchair Art Tours.
Declared at his death “First in peace, first in war, and first in the hearts of his countrymen,” George Washington is revered even today. Through works of art often drawn from area museums such as the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Delaware Art Museum, and the New York Historical Society, see how artists of his own time portrayed him for posterity and how that posterity, through its own crop of artists, commemorated his deeds.
