The Marion Art Center partners with the Sippican Historical Society to present Marion’s “golden age” in the arts. In the late 1800’s Marion became a summer gathering place for artists, writers, actors, musicians, architects, and intellectual luminaries. Four local experts, Wendy Bidstrup, Nancy Mitton, Judith Rosbe, and Meg Steinberg, bring to light some of the characters that made up this lively scene, including Cecil Clark Davis, Charles Dana Gibson, Henry James, Mark Twain, Century Magazine editor Richard Watson Gilder, and architects H.H. Richardson and Stanford White. UMass Dartmouth professor and art historian Catherine Moran sets the stage with an overview of the Gilded Age in America. A question-and-answer session follows the presentations.
