Apothecary in Bloom
Your senses will be drawn to bright, floral patterned pieces that accent the austere shop’s shelves and walls. Florals have long been in the veins of medicine and design, with flowers both inside the medicine bottle and on its label.
Discover the incredible history these floral artifacts share with medicine and wellness while enjoying a colonial-inspired menu at the wine and cheese Apothecary Garden Reception, included in the House Tour ticket.
Apothecary in Bloom was curated by Katelyn Winter, an intern working under Historic Bethlehem Museums & Sites Curator, Lindsey Jancay. Winter is a sophomore Dana Scholar majoring in English at Muhlenberg College.
Of the exhibit, she says, “I am so grateful to have been able to grow along with Apothecary In Bloom and learn what it takes to design and operate a successful exhibit... I hope every patron who views the exhibit is just as inspired by the finished product as I am.”
