Curator's Choice: Revere's Engraving of the Boston Massacre
with Ginny Badgett
Revere's Engraving of the Boston Massacre is part of a trio of events for ‘Curator’s Choice’ hosted by the Boston Athenæum’s Polly Thayer Starr Fellow in American Art & Culture Theo Tyson and Assistant Curator Ginny Badget.
This year marks the 250th anniversary of an infamous episode in American history sensationalized by Paul Revere’s 1770 engraving, The Bloody Massacre. Join us for an in-depth look at the inception of Revere’s engraving and how it continues to shape American historical memory today.
This event is part of our three-part series, "Curator's Choice." Join an Athenæum curator for a casual conversation about their current projects and the special collections items that inspire them, spark their curiousity, and generate discussion.
