Lunch and Learn- Gravestone Art and Artists

November 10, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Gravestone Art

Gravestone Art and Artists

Explore the stones of Peterborough’s East Hill burying ground in this Lunch & Learn program that examines this early American art form and identifies some of the artisans that made them. East Hill, an 18th century graveyard, is an outdoor museum featuring the works of more than seven different stone carvers. These markers reflect and express ideas about mortality, religion, and society more than 200 years ago. In this talk, you will see striking examples of portrait stones, soul effigies, and the famous Angel Gabriel stone and learn the stories behind these memorials.

Lunch & Learn starts with a delicious light luncheon of pinwheel sandwiches and salad with chips and a pickle. Choice of lemonade, coffee or tea. After lunch, we will enjoy a lively illustrated talk.

Tickets: $18 ($15 for Monadnock Center members).

Purchase your ticket(s) online below or call us at (603) 924-3235. Lunch & Learn programs usually sell out, so don’t delay!
