Admission: $FREE (reservations required)

Maxwell Anderson, Kurt Weill, Henry Varnum Poor, Morris Kantor … All of these men who lived and worked in the midcentury artists’ colony on South Mountain Road gained international respect and renown. But what about the gifted female artists and intellectuals who made “The Road” their home?

Executive Director Susan Deeks introduces five of these women—Mary Mowbray-Clarke, Ruth Reeves, Lotte Lenya, Bessie Breuer Poor, and Martha Ryther—to explore their unique achievements and make a case for why they should have a more prominent place in the history of American arts and letters.
