Sweet Connections – Strong Collections
Thursday, February 18, 2021
6:00 PM
Virtual Event

 

 

Join us for a special virtual evening to celebrate the world’s most comprehensive collection of USS Constitution artifacts and materials. Guests will be the first to welcome exciting new Museum acquisitions, go behind-the-scenes in the collection storage vault, and hear compelling stories about our artifacts during a discussion with our curators.

Event participants will have the opportunity to submit a Sweet Connections Message to a loved one for display during the pre-event slideshow. These messages can be messages of love, family, or friendship that highlight the connections we share with others and the power of family bonds. See your chosen ticket or sponsorship level for more information about word counts. Your Sweet Connections Message can be submitted to RSVP@usscm.org after your tickets are purchased through February 15, 2020.

The event link will be shared with ticket buyers and sponsors during the week of the event.

 

Supporting the Commodores Fund

This event is a fundraiser for the Museum’s Commodores Fund, to support the purchase of new collections from Constitution’s sailing days. Sponsorships and ticket sales will directly underwrite two recent exciting acquisitions which will enhance the Museum’s ability to interpret the history of USS Constitution and her crew.

The first is the James Severs collection of 150 documents detailing the early development of the U.S. Navy. Acquired in October, this collection has been described by a member of the Collections Committee as, “the best ‘find’ the Museum has ever, and will ever, discover!”  The second recent acquisition is two Thomas Sully portraits of Captain John Gwinn and his wife Caroline S. Lynch Gwinn. Painted in 1837 and 1839, these portraits are unique as the only contemporary portraits of a Constitution captain and his wife in the Museum’s collection. These portraits enhance the Museum’s fine art collection and allow us to fully tell the compelling story of one captain and his family.
