The Mysterious World of the Garden Grotto, Morven Museum & Garden (Virtual)

Wednesday October 19, 2022
12:00 PM

$5 General Admission, Free for Morven Members

When Annis Boudinot Stockton established a terraced garden on Morven's grounds in the 1760s, she added a grotto inspired by poet Alexander Pope's gardens in England. Today, the location and design of Annis' grotto is unknown. Join Morven Museum & Garden for an illustrated virtual presentation exploring the origins of the garden grotto in Europe, the meaning of these mysterious and unique spaces, and their translation to homes and estates in the United States. Speakers Dr. Gerald and Margaret Hull have spent the last fifteen years visiting and photographing over 300 grottoes, shell houses, and associated artifacts. Their presentation will take virtual attendees on a trip across the world ultimately providing visual and historical context for Annis' lost grotto. This program will be held virtual only. The Zoom webinar link will be shared via email prior to the event. The program will be recorded and sent to those registered following the event.
