The Beehive: the official blog of the Massachusetts Historical Society

This Week @ MHS

As of today, Monday, 22 March our new exhibit is open: "'A More Interior Revolution': Elizabeth Peabody, Margaret Fuller, and the Women of the American Renaissance" will be available for viewing Monday through Saturday from 1-4 p.m., and will be up through 30 June. Guest curator Megan Marshall has selected letters and journals written by Fuller and Peabody, together with writings and works of art created by other women who participated in the literary renaissance in New England between 1830 and Fuller's death in 1850. The exhibition draws upon the collections of the Massachusetts Historical Society and the Concord Free Public Library. You can find more information on the exhibit here.

 On Thursday, 25 March, the Boston Immigration and Urban History seminar series continues with a 5:15 p.m. talk by Emily Lieb of Columbia University, "'A Street's Last Chance': Dollar Houses and the Great New Baltimore." Brent Ryan of Harvard's Graduate School of Design will give the comment. Please read the Seminars @ MHS blog post for more information on attending seminars, including how to make reservations and receive the papers in advance.

And finally, we hope you'll join us on Saturday, 27 March from 10 a.m. - 3 p.m. for the annual MHS Open House. This will feature talks on the exhibit by Stephen T. Riley Librarian Peter Drummey (11 a.m. and 1 p.m.), as well as guided tours of the MHS building (10 a.m., 12 p.m., 2 p.m.). You can learn more about MHS programs and events, become a member, and enjoy some special refreshments.
