Winslow Homer's Croquet Summer exhibit opens Saturday, May 25. When Winslow Homer (1836-1910) returned to Belmont after the Civil War, he produced five croquet paintings and variations on this "modern" theme in other media. Come explore the story behind this fascinating series and--perhaps--enjoy a spot of croquet on the lawn that inspired it. Free with house admission.
