Classical American Homes and The Decorative Arts Trust (DAT) were pleased to welcome a talented group of speakers and an enthusiastic audience to our fourth Emerging Scholars Colloquium. Held on Sunday, January 26, at the George F. Baker Carriage House, this event sold out and was attended by over 100 guests, many of whom joined us for the Bloody Mary and Ham Biscuit Benefit Brunch which followed. The speakers presented impressive research on a range of topics and one repeat attendee said this was “The best colloquium yet!”
Thank you to our speakers for making this event such a success — Kate Hughes, Vishal Khandelwal, Rachel Pool, Kayli Rideout, and Celia Rodríguez Tejuca.
Thank you to the Wunsch Americana Foundation and Mr. & Mrs. Donald B. Ayres III for their sponsorship of this event, which benefits the DAT’s Emerging Scholars Program. Thank you also to Chuck and Dee Akre and to Clifford and Ralph Harvard for their generous support of the Colloquium.
We look forward to seeing you in 2021!
