Celebrate Maryland Day with an all-ages virtual trivia exploring the Maryland Center for History and Culture's newest exhibition: Discover Maryland. Test your knowledge of how the last 400 years have shaped Maryland and its people. From indigenous peoples and the founding of Maryland, to the landscape and how it has driven the economy and inspired innovation, to the arts and culture that exist in the state today. What comes to mind when you think of Maryland and the people who live here?
***All tours offered on a pay-only-what-you-can basis and proceeds benefit The Edgar Allan Poe House & Museum***
The historic Poe House is currently closed to the public due to the COVID-19 response in Maryland, but that doesn’t mean Poe’s chamber door is closed to you online. Join us for a live virtual tour of the historic Edgar Allan Poe House & Museum, led by a real museum docent.
Featuring Esther Krinitz's Holocaust survival story exquisitely told through 36 hand-embroidered works, this exhibition pays tribute to humanity's long history, past and current, of unjustly persecuted innocents and the dream of a world at peace. A preamble to Esther's fabric collages include South African Truth and Reconciliation embroidered testimonies, work gathered from Lily Yeh's partnership with Rwandan Tutsi genocide survivors, and more.
