On December 2nd, 2023, join fellow members of the William Morris Society in the United States for two special events in Delaware on the same day! In the morning at 11:00 am, we will visit “The Rossettis” exhibition at the Delaware Art Museum with a tour given by museum curator Dr. Sophie Lynford. Attendees are invited to stay afterward and eat lunch in the museum cafe, for a chance to socialize and gather in fellowship.
Then, at 2:00 pm, we will reconvene for at the University of Delaware Library for a special visit to the Mark Samuels Lasner Collection to see additional materials related to the Rossettis, including letters, manuscripts, association books, and original artwork. The Samuels Lasner Collection contains nearly 10,000 items in British literature and art of the period 1850-1900, with a focus on the Pre-Raphaelites and their associates and the writers and illustrators of the 1890s. Please be aware that visitors will need to show a government-issued photo ID to enter the building.
Please RSVP to indicate your intention of attending. Please note that entrance fee tickets to the exhibition are $25 for adults (but free admission for museum members!). Tickets can be purchased on site or online.
