Docent Led Private Tour

The Morven has played a role in New Jersey architecture, politics and history for more than two and half centuries.  The tour of the Morven Museum will provide participants an opportunity to learn about a treasured national historic landmark in the heart of Mercer County New Jersey. The discussion will focus on the development and organic expansion of the Morven including structures beginning with Richard Stockton’s home built in the 1750’s; additions throughout the 1800’s; Robert Wood Johnson Jr. having the Pool House built in the 1930’s; upgrades by the five Governors from 1950 to 1982 and the construction of the new state of the art Stockton Education Center in 2018. 

Presentation by Royce Epstein

We live in a material world, filled with stuff, from both natural and man-made materials. In this CEU, we will explore new materials in the Anthropocene with the hope of progress within two categories:

Dematerialization, or how can materials and products streamline their materiality and reduce their footprint;

Rematerialization, which looks at how can materials and products be rethought, remade, or remanufactured with new ideas and processes to address sustainability and over-consumption.

 

Designers will learn about new materials, new processes for making, and most importantly become enlightened about this ever-changing sustainability movement and how they themselves can participate.
