Photo of the Day: Hope

Just before Christmas 2012, I visited Mount Vernon, which was sparkling with holiday trimmings – themed Christmas trees everywhere, a camel who makes an appearance each year during the holiday season, poinsettias, free hot chocolate samples. But there was also much to see that was timeless and would have been moving or interesting or informative at any time of year. One such part of the museum and its grounds was the Slave Memorial, inscribed with the word “Hope” (along with “Love” and “Faith”).


About Laura

I care about what museums can do, both in terms of public offerings and internal practices, to make the world a better place. I blog about museum education ("informed"), the social work of museums ("humane"), and visitor experience ("citizenry").
