The New Haven Museum invites area artists to participate in a site-specific installation this July at the historic Pardee-Morris House, located at 325 Lighthouse Road. Artists will be asked to interpret the written and physical history of the 233-year-old building and produce an original work (all media) for display in the house throughout the summer. Respond by Wednesday, June 7, to Jason Bischoff-Wurstle at 203-562-4183 x18 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Pardee-Morris House is one of the oldest surviving historic structures in Connecticut, dating from c. 1780. Built by Amos Morris, the house was burned by the British in a 1779 raid on New Haven; it was rebuilt by the Morris family and willed in 1915 to the New Haven Colony Historical Society (New Haven Museum).
The Pardee-Morris House will be open free of charge on Sundays from 12-5 pm through Aug. 26.
