Benjamin Franklin House

Saturday, March 4, 2017 - 09:45

On Tuesday 14 March, Benjamin Franklin House are welcoming Fulbright Scholar Dr. Judy Bullington to 36 Craven Street for the lecture: Coffeehouse & Canvas: Franklin’s and Charles Willson Peale’s Botanical Turn.
Benjamin Franklin and Charles Willson Peale shared the enlightenment view about how “useful knowledge” from observation and experimentation in the natural sciences was integral to self and social “improvement.” Judy Bullington explores how enlightenment ideals of this nature percolated through London’s coffeehouse culture, which Franklin famously frequented, to be captured by Peale on canvas.
Events starts at 6:30pm
