4:30 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.

Join us at the Sandy Spring Museum to review an exceptional interactive exhibit, Weaving Community.  From September through December, all visitors to the Museum are invited to weave on a giant loom that will be constructed from the eleven-foot tall oak beams that frame the exhibit hall.  Working with artist Suzanne Herbert-Forson, everyone is invited to weave with us on a larger-than life loom, to add your creative input into this group project, and to meet new people. Everyone is encouraged to bring their own materials to weave into the project!  Suitable items include yarn, fabric strips, belts, ties, long pieces of wire, and so on. “Weaving community” is a metaphor for bringing together diverse elements of the community.

From 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m., the Museum will be hosting its monthly History Happy Hour with archaeologists from the University of Maryland speaking about The Hill: Maryland’s Oldest Black Community.  Tickets will be half price ($10) for Brew’n’Review attendees. 

The site is located on the north side of Maryland 108 in Sandy Spring.  Parking is available.
