Join us for Hillwood: A Garden for All Seasons with Kate Markert, Executive Director of Hillwood Estate, Museum & Gardens.

Join us for Hillwood: A Garden for All Seasons with Kate Markert, Executive Director of Hillwood Estate, Museum & Gardens and author of A Garden for All Seasons: Marjorie Merriweather Post’s Hillwood, the first publication devoted to these special gardens in the heart of Washington.

Kate Markert has delved into the archives to describe Post’s approach to creating this enchanting environment of mansion and gardens fitting perfectly together. Erik Kvalsvik worked with Markert for over two years to photograph the estate is every season, in many different weather conditions and at different times of the day, to illustrate, in gorgeous color, the result of modern horticulturists' labors and Post’s original vision. As the result of strategic planning, exciting special exhibition programs, stimulating and relevant public programs and revitalized gardens, Kate has guided the organization to a more than fifty-percent increase in attendance and tripling of membership. Renovations to the campus have provided more public areas. There will soon also be better spaces for the library and collection storage.

Kate Markert has been director of the Wadsworth Atheneum in Hartford, associate director of the Walters Art Museum in Baltimore, and deputy director and acting director of the Cleveland Museum of Art. She holds as MA in art history and an MBA. Kate chairs the visiting committee of Longwood Gardens in PA and is a member of the Association of Art Museum Directors and Directors of Large Gardens.
