7.3/ East Hampton Historical Society: Tour the Moran Studio — July 8


Join EHHS staff this Saturday, July 8 at 10am, on a walking tour from Clinton Academy to the Moran Studio, the home and art studio of Thomas Moran and Mary Nimmo Moran.
Thomas Moran is often credited as one of the fathers of the National Parks Service – his groundbreaking paintings of natural areas in the American West, including Yellowstone, were instrumental in the creation of the National Parks Service. Mary Nimmo Moran was the only woman fellow of the Royal Society of Painter-Etchers and Engravers, a talented artist in her own right, and an avid gardener.
————————————-
Their studio is cited as the first artist studio in East Hampton and fundamental in the establishment of the east end of Long Island as an important artists colony.  
————————————-
The restoration of the building is now in its final phase of construction and the Garden Club of East Hampton has re-created a selection of Mary’s gardens. Our staff will share this long and exciting journey with you. Be inspired to help the Thomas Moran Trust get to the finish line!
This tour is free, but registration is required to save your place. Guests must be prepared to walk on sidewalks approximately 1/8 mile to and from the Studio. The Tour meets at and departs from the Clinton Academy. There is no parking onsite at the Studio.
