Living Artfully: Marjorie Merriweather Post’s Willwood

February 21 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

$15 – $60

Hillwood Estate, Museum & Garden’s Executive Director Kate Markert

One of the wealthiest women in America when she inherited her father’s Postum company (later General Foods) at age 27 in 1914, Marjorie Merriweather Post went on to be a pioneering business woman, serious art collector, generous philanthropist, and noted hostess throughout her long life.  She created Hillwood, her 25 acre Washington, D.C. estate, in 1955 at age 68, planning from the outset that it would become a public institution upon her death. Executive Director Kate Markert reveals how Post lived her artful life in her three spectacular homes, Hillwood, TopRidge, and Mar-a-Lago, with her world-class collections and exquisite gardens. Living Artfully will be available for sale and signing following the lecture.
