Tales from the Dark Side
Tales from the Dark Side (of Victorian Life!)
A lighter look at the side of the Victorian Era not as often discussed. Things like plumbing, hygiene, and undergarments were not often the subject of conversation but colored the culture (and the streets) in very tangible ways. A not for the faint of heart look at Victorian life and its sooty underbelly!
The Mid-Atlantic Center for the Arts & Humanities is a multifaceted not-for-profit organization committed to promoting the preservation, interpretation, and cultural enrichment of the Cape May region for its residents and visitors, by:
Fostering a greater understanding and appreciation for the Victorian lifestyle and for the architecture, decorative arts, history and livelihoods of the Cape May region.
Preserving and restoring the Emlen Physick Estate, the Cape May Lighthouse and other landmark structures in the Cape May region.
Encouraging the performing arts in the Cape May region through presenting performances, conducting educational outreach and providing support services to other arts and cultural organizations.
Providing professional development to teachers and educational outreach to schoolchildren and adults in subject areas corresponding to the organization’s public programming.
Supporting the efforts to preserve the Cape May region’s historic architecture through the sponsorship of cultural and heritage tourism, and through providing support services to other non-profit organizations in the areas of cultural, heritage and ecological tourism.
Acquiring, preserving, exhibiting and interpreting objects pertaining to the Victorian period and to the architecture, decorative arts, and history of the Cape May region.
If novelty in nature is your thing and you relish the opportunity to immerse yourself in her variety, color, shape, form and function than this presentation is for you. With 110,000 species of moth worldwide, one can be kept pretty entertained trying to get a peek into their secret lives. Under appreciated cousins of butterflies’ moths are truly the silent majority of the Stygian world. During this presentation you will learn the basics of moth biology, facts about individual species, and be provided with all the necessary tools to spend a little nocturnal time enjoying for yourself these nighttime jewels.
