Tea, Tulips, & Trees

Saturday, May 4, 2019

We cordially invite parents, families, and the public to attend our beautiful spring family event just in time to celebrate mothers and grandmothers (Mother’s Day is May 12). In collaboration with Hofstra University Museum of Art and the Grounds Department, our annual event will include access to Hofstra’s first building, Hofstra Hall. The Emily Lowe Gallery of the Hofstra University Museum of Art will be open and backpack self-guided tours will be available. Patrice Dimino, landscape designer and assistant curator, will host indoor discussions on the tulips. Fred Soviero, director of the grounds, and Elizabeth Dysart, Hofstra University Museum of Art director of education and engagement, will lead a tour of Hofstra's arboretum and outdoor sculptures with our tulips at their peak! You are also invited to enjoy a variety of teas and sweets!
