The Opening Reception for “Mixing Memories – Sharing History” Community Exhibition will be held on Friday, April 22nd between 5:00-8:00 PM at Cliveden, located at 6401 Germantown Avenue in Germantown, PA.

Mixing Memories – Sharing History, an exhibit of kitchen objects and recipes on loan from members of our surrounding community, was created through a series of community outreach events with local churches and senior centers including Mt. Airy United Fellowship Church, Center in the Park, and Wesley Enhanced Living at Stapeley, as well as other outreach activities. The items, recipes, and memories illuminate the many roles kitchens play in our lives.

The exhibit prompts discussion of kitchen spaces over time. What did they look like? Who worked in them? What foods were prepared? What utensils were used?

Cliveden, completed in 1767 as a summer home for the wealthy Chew Family, has a 1767 Kitchen Dependency and a 1959 Modern Kitchen, which attendees will be able to explore.

Admission is free and light refreshments will be served.
