The Arts and Crafts Movement in America’s Northeast: An Historic Deerfield Forum
SEPTEMBER 29-30, 2023 IN DEERFIELD, MASSACHUSETTS
SUBMISSIONS DUE BY MAY 15, 2023.

Historic Deerfield is thrilled to announce the acquisition of a masterpiece of Arts and Crafts furniture constructed by Madeline Yale Wynne (1847-1918), Deerfield’s leading proponent of the Arts and Crafts Movement. Known as Garden of Hearts, the chest, with finely crafted, forged, hammered, carved, and painted elements, was made in 1903 and is an important example of Arts and Crafts furniture by a groundbreaking female artist. It will be on display in the exhibition Garden of Hearts: Madeline Yale Wynne and Deerfield’s Arts and Crafts Movement at Historic Deerfield’s Flynt Center beginning April 15, 2023. To mark the occasion of this important acquisition, Historic Deerfield’s Fall Forum will focus on the Arts and Crafts Movement in the northeastern region of the United States.
