The Museum proudly welcomes individuals and organizations to purchase an engraved brick bearing their name for placement in the Museum's Silk Walk. The deadline for orders for this year's phase of the Silk Walk Project is March 31st,2020.
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. Purchase an engraved brick as a memorial for a loved one, to honor a graduate, to celebrate a co-worker/organization and even for yourself. Silk Walk 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.
On Sunday, June 7th, 2020 at 1PM, the Museum is scheduled to welcome donors of Silk Walk bricks and their guests to the Annual Silk Walk Reception, held on the grounds of the Museum's headquarters, the Botto House National Landmark. Preceeding the unveiling of the bricks, the Museum's annual membership meeting is scheduled to take place. Tours of the Museum are available and, the Museum Store is open for browsing and shopping. Light refreshments will be served.
