Annual Silk Walk Unveiling, Sunday, June 6th at 1PM
The Museum cordially invites donors of 2021 phase Silk Walk bricks to an unveiling of their engraved brick that is displayed at the Museum's headquarters, the Botto House National Landmark on Sunday, June 6th, 2021 at 1PM. The event will begin with the Museum's General Membership meeting. The Museum will be open to donors and their guests and, the Museum Store will be available for browsing and shopping.
The Silk Walk is made of engraved bricks prominently placed at the Museum's front walkway and under the grape arbor of its Old World Gardens. This ongoing project is available for all to participate. The Museum welcomes individuals and organizations to purchase an engraved brick as a memorial for a loved one, to honor a graduate, to celebrate a co-worker/organization and evenfor yourself. Silk Walks bricks are priced from $50 to $200. Funds from the project are used for the Museum's educational programs, outreach and exhibits.
Each year, trained apprentices schooled at the International Masonry Institute of Bordentown, New Jersey install the bricks. Members of the masons' union Local 4 & 5 are scheduled to participate in this year's installation.
