Hillwood Proves ‘Spectacular!’


“Spectacular!” at Hillwood Estate, Museum & Gardens provided a preview of the exhibition, featuring gems and jewelry from the Merriweather Post Collection, at an opening night gala June 6.  Ambassador of France Gérard Araud served as honorary chair with co-chairs Mark Lowham, Amy Meadow, Molly Rolandi and Hillwood Executive Director Kate Markert.  Following a cocktail reception and an opportunity to view the collection — many pieces lent by the Smithsonian — guests proceeded to dinner on the Lunar Lawn and a rousing birthday serenade to Mrs. Post’s granddaughter Ellen MacNeille Charles, president emerita of Hillwood’s Board of Trustees.
