Saturday Evening Girls: Immigrant Artists and Scholars in Boston in the Early 1900s

May 21, 2016 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Tickets Starting at: $10 – $20

Dr. Dorothy E. King, assistant professor of sociology at Penn State Harrisburg will be joined by Joanne Riley, archivist at UMASS Boston and Roz Kramer, daughter of pioneer Saturday Evening Girls (SEG) researcher Barbara Kramer, to present an illustrated lecture on the group. The SEG, best known for establishing the Paul Revere Pottery, started out in Boston in 1899 as a progressive organization for the education and socialization of young Jewish and Italian immigrant women from Boston’s North End. The history of the SEG is tied to Cape Ann through the camp built on Wingaersheek Beach in 1906, which offered the young women a refuge from the city during the summer months. This program is $10 for CAM members / $20 for non-members (includes Museum admission). Space is limited; reservations required.

For more information, email us atinfo@capeannmuseum.org. Tickets can be purchased by calling the Museum at 978-283-0455 x10 or online at Eventbrite.
