Morristown National Historical Park (NHP) will continue its 90th-anniversary celebration with a talk by artist Xiomaro on Saturday, June 24.
The talk, titled “At Home with George…and Xiomaro,” will take place at Washington’s Headquarters Museum and will focus on Xiomaro’s new exhibit, “At Home with George,” which celebrates the 90th anniversary of Morristown NHP.
Xiomaro’s exhibit features photographs of the homes and interiors of Morristown NHP, as well as portraits of some of the people who lived and worked there. The exhibit is on view at the Morris Museum until July 30, 2023.
In his talk, Xiomaro will discuss the inspiration for his exhibit, as well as his process for creating the photographs. He will also share some of the stories behind the people and places in the photographs.
The program is free and open to the public. Seating is limited, so attendees are encouraged to arrive early.
