CACS Annual Winter Symposium
January 18, 2020 5-8pm
at Boettcher Mansion

CACS’ annual symposium this year is special! Professor Jim Spates will travel from New York to talk about John Ruskin, on whose works he is an authority. We celebrate the 200th anniversary of Ruskin’s birth.

What was the origin of the Arts & Crafts Movement? It was certainly imported to the United States from Britain, and by general agreement the British Arts & Crafts Movement was spurred by the writings of two towering figures: first John Ruskin, and second William Morris. Most of us know a lot more about Morris than about Ruskin.

Come to the Boettcher Mansion on Saturday evening, January 18th to hear about John Ruskin and his relationship to the Arts & Crafts Movement, from Professor Jim Spates, after a cocktail hour to reacquaint with old friends, and a great dinner.

Reserve your place with Cynthia Shaw at 720.497.7632 or cshaw@jeffco.us by January 10, 2020.

($40 for CACS member; $50 for nonmembers, to include cocktails and a catered dinner by The Pines at Genesee).
