Member Preview Day: The Artistic Table

Hillwood members have the opportunity for an exclusive first look at the exhibition The Artistic Table before it opens to the public!

You're invited to enter the grand world of entertaining with dazzling designs and tables set in style. Celebrating Marjorie Merriweather Post's gift for bringing art to everyday dining, some of today's most well-known interior designers look to Marjorie and her finest table settings to curate a feast for the eyes. Using historic table wares and contemporary treasures, designers draw inspiration from Marjorie's exceptional style and their own modern aesthetics to design beautiful and refreshing takes on setting an artistic table. 

Join Angie Dodson, director of learning and engagment and co-chair of exhibitions; Wilfried Zeisler, chief curator and co-chair of exhibitions; and Estella Chung, director of collections and co-chair of exhibitions, for a special presentation regarding the art of entertaining. On February 15, presentations will be held at 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. On February 16, presentations will be held at 11 a.m., 2 p.m., and 6 p.m.

Please note: The exhibition will be open all day to Hillwood members and their guests. Space is limited for presentations; advanced reservations are suggested. Call 202.686.5807 to reserve.
