Celebrate the mother figures in your life this Mother’s Day with a special visit to Planting Fields. Explore what is in bloom and enjoy a small variety of hot tea paired with individually packaged cookies outside in the Cloister Garden. Guests will also encounter one of the site’s unique architectural spaces: the Teahouse in the Italian Garden (1915). The space features murals and furnishings commissioned from American artist Everett Shinn by W.R. and Mai Coe, who built a legacy of artistic patronage by supporting the modern artists of their time. American modernist and member of the Ashcan School of painters, Everett Shinn (1876 – 1953) is best known for his paintings and pastels of scenes depicting the urban poor and brassy vaudeville acts. He was a lover of theater, music, and performance of all kinds, and throughout his long career he created works on paper, canvas, furnishings, architecture, even musical instruments and stage sets, that engaged with a raucous decorative aesthetic often termed Rococo revival. Seeing the murals and furnishings inside the Teahouse will introduce guests to Shinn’s engagement with the decorative.
