Beverages and popcorn will be sold and the first 100 guests will receive a free Sculpture at Evergreen catalog. Rain location: Evergreen Carriage House.

About Evergreen House

The home of two generations of Baltimore's prominent Garrett family from 1878-1942, Evergreen House and its collection of over 50,000 objects were bequeathed to the Johns Hopkins University in 1942 with the stipulation that the estate remain open to "lovers of music, art, and beautiful things." Since opening to the public in 1990, Evergreen House has surpassed mere historic preservation to creatively respond to the Garretts' legacy. Today, Evergreen operates as a dynamic house museum, contemporary art center, and performance space, offering a year-round calendar of artist residency programs for emerging and established artists; lectures, symposia, and concerts; exhibitions; and educational programming.
