Deerfield-Wellesley Symposium

A one-day symposium sponsored by Historic Deerfield and the Grace Slack McNeil Program for Studies in American Art at Wellesley College, funded by the Barra Foundation.

This free, day-long symposium will explore artistic productions of familial memory and commemoration in New England from the 1600s to the turn of the 20th century. The art of family was wide-ranging and included family registers, mourning art, gravestones, textiles, furniture, jewelry and other clothing accessories, scrapbooks and albums, as well as portraits, silhouettes, and, by the mid-19th century, photographs.

The symposium will feature three panels of scholars who will present on the following themes: “Family, Identity and Commemoration,” “Representing and Remembering Family,” and “Crafting Family, Making Homes.” The afternoon will feature a demonstration of silhouette cutting.

Registration for the event is requested, and a lunch will be available for purchase.
