Livestream Concert: Music at the Mansion Presents Reggie Harris

Livestream Concert: Music at the Mansion Presents Reggie Harris

The Liriodendron Foundation is excited to present Reggie Harris in a free online concert as part of our Music at the Mansion series on Sunday, October 25 from 7 to 8 pm.

Reggie Harris is an innovative guitarist, a fearlessly creative vocalist, and an engaging storyteller whose concert performances are infused with joy. It’s clear to all that he deeply loves singing and that it is more than his work. But that’s not all.

Uniquely committed to “music as a community building vehicle,” Reggie’s music shares insightful perspectives on issues of  life, history, education and human rights. In the spirit of his mentors, Pete Seeger and Dr. Bernice Johnson Reagon, (founder of Sweet Honey in the Rock), Reggie is a master songleader who loves to help people discover that they can make a difference at any age, wherever they may live.

A songwriter of great depth and passion, Reggie Harris writes from a personal sense of mission that merges a world wise point of view with a singularly hopeful stance that life, though often challenging, is filled with possibility and hope. His songs reveal thoughts about life and love and some of the deep aspects of the human experience and cover topics from his own personal journey to world issues and history.

The concert will be shown for free on Zoom and Facebook live. You can join the concert by logging onto:

Trailblazing Women of Architecture in Maryland

Trailblazing Women of Architecture in Maryland

In honor of the Year of the Woman in Maryland and the 100th anniversary of women’s right to vote, the Liriodendron Foundation is hosting an exhibit through September 30 that celebrates women who contributed their design talent to Maryland’s built environment at a time when few women were in the profession.  Many of the women practiced through the lean years of the Depression and World War II, designing buildings in Maryland and across the country, serving as a story of perseverance and determination.  

Also showcased in the Liriodendron Mansion’s galleries is artwork and architectural drawings of Poldi Hirsch (1926-1987), a Havre de Grace resident and the first woman of the Baltimore Chapter of the American Institute of Architects (AIA) who owned her own firm.  Over 25 modern structures still stand in Harford County as a testament to her professional perseverance and pioneering legacy. 

A special online presentation will be given on Wednesday, August 12 at 7 pm by the curator of the exhibit, Jillian Storms, AIA.  Ms Storms received BAF’s Roger Redden Award and Preservation Maryland’s George T. Harrison Volunteer Award in recognition of her extensive work in organizing the research effort and curating the traveling exhibit.  She has a Master of Architecture from the University of Oregon and a Bachelor of Urban Studies and Planning from Goucher College. 

Click here to register for the event. 

The exhibit is on view free to the public from July 3 to September 30, 2020 during Open House hours each Wednesday from 1 to 7 pm, and on second Sundays (August 9th and September 13) from 11 am to 3 pm, or by appointment by contacting 410.879.4424 or info@liriodendron.com.

 The travelling exhibit was sponsored by the Baltimore Architecture Foundation (BAF) and developed by members of the Women in Architecture (now EQUITY) Committee of AIA Baltimore, with research assistance from architecture students at Morgan State University.

The presentation is made possible, in part, by a grant from the Dresher Foundation.
