    2. ART EXHIBIT: “The Loves of Aaron Burr: Portraits in Corsetry & Binding”
      10:00 am – 10:00 am

      “The Loves of Aaron Burr,” by artist Camilla Huey resurrects the voices of nine ‘women of letters’ involved in the adventurous life of Aaron Burr — the most notorious of our founding fathers.  Historically, the 18th century woman was viewed as a body without a voice.  By combining the letters, books and ephemera – each bound within a period appropriate corset, rather than bound in a book – the corsets become each woman’s “body” of work.  Huey’s unusual portraits reanimate the voices of these exceptional and forgotten women of the Colonial and Federal period.  This is the first time contemporary art has been integrated into this historic mansion. Members Reception, May 3, 2016 6:00 – 9:00pm May 3 – June 30, 2016 Tuesday – Saturday 10:00am – 4:00pm (last tour starts at 4:00pm) Sunday 1:00 – 4:00pm (last tour starts at 4:00pm)

    2. ART EXHIBIT: “The Loves of Aaron Burr: Portraits in Corsetry & Binding”
      10:00 am – 10:00 am

      “The Loves of Aaron Burr,” by artist Camilla Huey resurrects the voices of nine ‘women of letters’ involved in the adventurous life of Aaron Burr — the most notorious of our founding fathers.  Historically, the 18th century woman was viewed as a body without a voice.  By combining the letters, books and ephemera – each bound within a period appropriate corset, rather than bound in a book – the corsets become each woman’s “body” of work.  Huey’s unusual portraits reanimate the voices of these exceptional and forgotten women of the Colonial and Federal period.  This is the first time contemporary art has been integrated into this historic mansion. Members Reception, May 3, 2016 6:00 – 9:00pm May 3 – June 30, 2016 Tuesday – Saturday 10:00am – 4:00pm (last tour starts at 4:00pm) Sunday 1:00 – 4:00pm (last tour starts at 4:00pm)
