Circles Virtual Event: Go Behind the Scenes from Home!

Enjoy exclusive access and share a special evening with Hillwood among friends while staying healthy and safe at home.

Circles members are invited to explore the production process behind the dazzling exhibition, Roaring Twenties: The Life and Style of Marjorie Merriweather Post. Join Megan Martinelli, assistant curator of apparel, jewelry, and accessories, and Linda Heinrich, exhibition designer, for a glimpse into their conservation and design work. Mix a themed cocktail, assemble tasty hors d'oeuvres, and prepare to be transported virtually to the Jazz Age as the experts divulge insight into the making of this exhibition.

This event will take place online via ZOOM on Thursday, May 21 at 6 p.m. Details for how to tune in will be sent via email to current Circles members. Thank you for your dedication and generosity! We look forward to this virtual visit.

To prepare for this virtual event, you can download ZOOM on your computer, smart phone, or tablet. Given that there will be so many wonderful visuals to enjoy, as well as the opportunity to interact with others, we kindly recommend using a method that will enable you to view the presentation and to be seen as well.

Please note: the ZOOM meeting will open a bit early to allow for extra time to ensure successful connectivity prior to the presentation at 6 p.m.

This event is part of the benefits reserved for Hillwood's Circles members. For further information, such as how to join or upgrade your membership to participate in this unique program, please contact Catherine Vassaux, development officer, at
