La Chandeleur, also known as Crêpe Day, marks the halfway point between winter and spring. In France, families celebrate by eating crêpes, which are round and golden like the springtime sun.

Hillwood Stands in Solidarity with Ukraine

Hillwood Estate, Museum & Gardens condemns the unprovoked invasion and aggression against Ukraine. We stand with the courageous people of Ukraine, and with those of Russia who oppose these terrible acts. As a museum, Hillwood houses a beautiful collection of Russian art through the ages, and we hope the insight that our collection offers our visitors will help serve as a reminder of the citizens who have stood and continue to stand separate from hostile military action. We offer support and solidarity to Ukraine during this monumental tragedy.
