A new exhibit showing her content life at Steepletop is set to open at McDaris Fine Art in Hudson (map) with a reception on February 22, Millay’s birthday, from 5:30-9:30. The exhibit will feature photos and items that have been kept at Steepletop, perfectly preserved since her death in 1950. This will be the first time these will be on display outside if Millay’s estate. A photo of Steepletop by Glynnis McDaris will also be auctioned off during the reception.
