May 3 – 6, 2018

Morven in May, one of Princeton’s most anticipated Spring rituals, is expanding this year to celebrate the opening of the Stockton Education Center. The Ribbon Cutting and Preview Party will be Thursday, May 3rd and the juried exhibition and sale featuring the work of thirty-six contemporary craft artists from around the U.S. will be open to the public Friday to Sunday for three days of art and garden treasure hunting!

This year’s esteemed juror, Lena Stringari, Deputy Director of The Guggenheim Museum, selected the exhibitors, whose exquisite work in glass, ceramics, wood, decorative and wearable fiber, jewelry, furniture, metal, and basketry will be displayed in gallery-style booths under a grand tent on the museum’s Great Lawn.

Alongside the craft show tent, Morven will offer for sale a distinct collection of plants for your garden. Now in its 17th year, the Morven heirloom plant sale will include unique varieties of annuals and perennials, flowering shrubs, and select plants propagated from Morven’s own garden. PLEASE CHECK BACK LATER FOR THE PLANT SALE BROCHURE.

2018 Honored Committee: Sheila Johnson Brutcsh, Colleen Goggins, Betty Wold Johnson, Liza and Sky Morehouse, Georgie Schley, Ann and Austin Starkey, and Robert N. Wilson

Co-Chairs: Kristin Appelget, Sebastian Clarke and Katherine Van Dell, Carol and Dick Hanson, Dorothy and Charles Plohn , Jr., and Daphne Townsend,

All proceeds from Morven in May help fund the museum’s exhibitions, historic gardens, and educational programs.
