Art at Applewood

12pm on Friday, July 5

This is the third session of the 2019 Bring Your Lunch & Learn series at Applewood.

Charles Stewart Mott and family always had a love for art. In this session, learn about the art at Applewood through the decades from the time the home was built in 1916. We will start by learning about the art inside the house and then we’ll explore the estate on foot to view some of the newer works of art that have been installed throughout the grounds. While on the walking tour, enjoy a special Taste of Applewood made with ingredients grown on the estate. Bring your lunch with you to enjoy during the session.
