The East Hampton Historical Society Hosts Opening Celebration of Moran Studio Exhibition, Friday, July 6th
The East Hampton Historical Society, the new stewards of the Thomas & Mary Nimmo Moran Studio, has announced an Opening Celebration to be held on the evening of Friday, July 6, 2018. The benefit will celebrate the opening of the Moran Studio Exhibition, a collaborative effort that has brought the “World of Moran” to life. Located on East Hampton’s Main Street Historic District, this charming turreted Queen Anne shingled piece of Victorian architectural is a local gem that also has the honor of being registered as a National Historic Landmark.
Created in 1884, across from swan-filled Town Pond, this house, its garden and contents will open the eyes of visitors into the world of one of America’s power art couples: Thomas Moran, known for his awe-inspiring Western landscapes, which were pivotal in the founding of the National Parks, and his wife, Mary Nimmo Moran, an internationally known etcher, innovator and master of the medium. The Moran Studio is widely recognized as one of the first stand-alone artist’s studios built on the East End of Long Island.
The opening week of the Moran Studio will be brimming with educational events, including the Thomas & Mary Nimmo Moran Victorian Garden Tours, hosted by the Garden Club of East Hampton, as well as children Studio and Garden Tours, led by the newly appointed Director of Education, Stacy Myers. Registration is required and space is limited. To reserve a spot, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 631-324-6850.
Through a meticulous five-year restoration project, the Moran Studio has been salvaged from dilapidation, and is proud to open its doors to the public in July, 2018. All proceeds from the Moran Opening Celebration at the Moran Studio support educational programs, exhibitions, and museum programming. Tickets start at $150.
