CANCELED: Beyond Grief: Encounters with Cemetery Monument Art

April 11, 2020 @ 1:00 pm
April 11, 2020 @ 2:30 pm
Mount Auburn Cemetery
580 Mt Auburn St
Cambridge, MA 02138 United States

This event has been canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. 

In a desire to soften the message of death and to beautify the cemetery, mourners turned to fine art sculpture and engaged notable sculptors to help them understand the mystery of death.  Join Volunteer Docent, Rosemarie Smurzynski, in this spring walk to visit Mount Auburn’s fine art memorials.  Hear stories of those remembered by this art, loved ones who commissioned the monuments, and the artists who created them.

Experience a deeper connection to Mount Auburn Cemetery with free access to all our public programs and discounts on special events by joining the Friends of Mount Auburn. Our robust roster of programs each year is made possible through your generous support.


Funding for programs has been provided in part by the Massachusetts Cultural Council.
