Coffee with a Curator: Cooking Tools @ DAR Museum
Jun 7 @ 9:00 am – 10:00 am

Would you like to start your morning with some coffee, pastries, and a dash of American history? Then join us the first Friday of every month for our new Coffee with a Curator series! Every month the DAR Museum curators will highlight different objects in our Study Gallery collection, providing insights, pointing out significant details, and answering questions. This unique, informal environment provides the opportunity for in-depth, intimate conversations with curators about objects within their specialty.

In order to facilitate meaningful conversation and close-looking, this program is capped at 15 attendees. Coffee, tea, and pastries provided for all program participants.

This month, join Carrie Blough, Assistant Registrar/Associate Curator, in conversation about 18th century cooking tools from the DAR Museum collection. How were these tools used? What can they tell us about foodways of the period?

Grab a cup and let’s start the conversation.
