Field Trip: Hermitage and Mahantongo Heritage Center
Saturday, October 1, 10am-3:30pm
Departs from and returns to Elaine Langone Center
In connection to Tomorrow Never Happens and its focus on the concept of a queer utopia, we will be visiting this one-of-a-kind queer utopian experiment right here in Central PA, which was recently featured in the New York Times.
The Hermitage and Mahantongo Heritage Center is a planned queer utopian hermitage modeled after a same-sex Moravian community from the 1700s. Visitors will have the opportunity to learn about this history and witness firsthand how visionary art, letterpress printing, craft, and large-scale sculpture play a role in communicating the utopic message of the Hermitage.
The bus leaves promptly at 10am from the Dent Drive entrance to the Elaine Langone Center on Bucknell’s campus. Upon arriving at the Hermitage, we will have a tour and discussion from 11am-1pm followed by lunch at Penn’s Tavern. We will return to the Elaine Langone Center by 3:30.
Includes bus travel and lunch at Penn’s Tavern is on your own.
Space is limited. Please RSVP to attend.
