First Friday at Heurich House -- Spring Blossoms

First Friday at Heurich House -- Spring Blossoms

This First Friday, May 3rd 6-8pm, explore the Heurich House Museum and celebrate Spring in our Conservatory with botanical coloring sheets and local DC botanical artist, Emily Paluska of Revery Paper Flora. Her creations can be seen all over DC, and on Instagram. The museum’s Castle Garden and Carriage House gallery featuring “HOME/BREWED: How the Chr. Heurich Brewing Co. Witnessed DC History” will also be open for visitors to enjoy.

Although the Heurich family, had a beautiful private garden in the city, DC in the summer would be oppressively hot, so they escaped to their farm or travelled Europe. Christian Heurich purchased the land in Prince George’s Country in 1886 and turned it into a working dairy farm where he bred prize-winning dairy cows. After the land was sold in 1951 by Amelia Heurich, it was turned into what is currently Prince George’s plaza in Hyattsville, Maryland.

This event is free and open to the public. Drinks and snacks will be available for purchase during the event.

About First Friday Dupont: Enter the heart of DC’s art scene the first Friday of every month from 6-8 pm. Participating galleries and museums will host special programming and exhibitions. To see a list of participating sites, please visit http://www.firstfridaydupont.org/

ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR: Emily Paluska is the paper artist behind Revery Paper Flora. Her work has been shared by Design Seeds, Craftsposure and Lia Griffith. Her inability to keep real plants alive in conjunction with her obsession with all things botanical, led to the creation of RPF. You can most often find her at her desk on Capitol Hill surrounded by hundreds of rolls of paper, cutting late into the night. She believes that exercising one's creative muscles leads to a happier life and hopes that by sharing her love of paper flowers with others, can help others find their creative spirit too.
