An Update on the Anne Spencer House and Museum Mosaic Tiles

Posted By Heather A. Widener, Thursday, April 16, 2015

We are happy to report that the Virginia's Top 10 Endangered Artifacts program was instrumental in the Anne Spencer House and Garden Museum's efforts to preserve the Mosaic Tile Work produced by Amaza Lee Meredith. Congratulations to the folks at Anne Spencer House & Garden Museum: 

 

"The Anne Spencer House & Garden Museum received recognition from Virginia Association of Museums (VAM) in 2014 as holding one of Virginia's Top Ten Endangered Artifacts. VAM issued statewide publicity that also generated  local news stories that raised public awareness and the museums need to receive financial support to restore and preserve the the Mosaic Tile Work produced by the artist Amaza Lee Meredith. Without the this recognition from VAM Endangered Artifacts  Program, Meredith's Tile-work would most likely be removed from public display indefinitely." - Shaun Spencer-Hester, Director of the Anne Spencer House & Garden Museum
