Tea at Marion’s Romantic Art Colony
April 29 at 2:00 pm–4:00 pm
The village of Marion, Massachusetts became a magnet for a group of well-known artists, writers, intellectuals, actors, and musicians in the late 19th and early 20th centuries (dubbed the Romantic period by art historians). They often gathered in the Old Stone Studio, which still stands on Spring Street. Come meet the fascinating members of this art colony from Marion’s “Golden Age.” After a short theatrical sketch to introduce them, you’ll join the actors in character for tea and conversation. Topics of discussion include political and social influences on art and the Marion art community’s significance.
