On May 8th, Alexandra Whiteside, a local builder and artist — and Dr. Miele’s eldest daughter — will reveal the secrets hidden in the ornate hand-carved woodwork throughout the historic Hermitage Museum. Once the private residence of Florence and William Sloane, the house was designed by the couple to live on as a museum for the benefit of our community.

As a Hermitage docent some years ago, Alexandra took advantage of the opportunity to study the intricate wood carvings up-close. Now, after delving into the museum’s archives — including Mrs. Sloane’s carefully preserved notes, letters, and receipts — Alexandra reveals the secret symbols that are ingrained in the soul of the Hermitage Museum.  

May 8: Ingrained: The Symbolism of Woodwork at the Hermitage

HermitageAlexandra Whiteside, Owner, Chelsea Custom Contracting 
The master woodcarvers who plied their craft at the Hermitage were among the last of their kind. This lecture will explore and rediscover the history and, in some cases, the long-forgotten symbolic meanings behind these ornate carvings.

Suggested donation to the museum is $3.
