Spring is a time for new beginnings and that couldn’t be truer for Bristol’s Linden Place Mansion. At the onset of the pandemic, the museum closed its doors but, during that time, the team of historians and curators were hard at work. “Linden Place has spent the last twelve months of the COVID-19 pandemic working on a complete reinterpretation of Linden Place’s tour and story,” says Susan Battle, executive director at Linden Place. “In doing that, we have redesigned rooms in the 1810 mansion, giving them a whole new look and feel that we are excited to unveil and share as part of our opening weekend, ‘Art Blooming at Linden Place’ show. This extra-special reopening will feature flower arrangements and original art inspired by the mansion’s beauty and history all created by local artists. Find these special creations in the redesigned rooms of the historical home or across the lush sculpture garden. “Whether you have toured Linden Place many times before or if ‘Art Blooming’ will be your first time visiting our mansion, you are bound to see something new, beautiful and fascinating,” says Battle. The weekend-long event opens with a reception on May 7 and continues May 8 and 9, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tickets are $15 for members and $20 for non-members.
