The Mansion Museum’s latest exhibit explores “Orchidelirium,” the fanatical Victorian-era obsession with collecting, cultivating and discovering orchids, through the work of Adelaide Flaccus Stifel.
Born in Wheeling, West Virginia in 1884, Stifel took up the hobby in the late 1930s as part of an American and European craze that would make orchids the nexus of science, status and beauty.
This exhibit explores her individual passion for orchids through paintings, cultivation and her own meticulous scientific records.
“Orchidelirium” is on display through January 3 and is included with museum admission.
Sponsored by The Honorable and Mrs. Frederick P. Stamp, Jr. and Mr. James H. Frey and Mr. Michael P. Hires.
Single Museum admission: $10
Dual Museum admission (Mansion and Glass Museums): $15
(Ages 17 and under are free and must be accompanied by an adult.)
