O Museum in The Mansion announces "Through the Looking Glass Exhibition Of Classic Children's Literature"
The exhibit, which opens November 28 at 5 pm, at 2020 O Street NW, will provide visitors with the opportunity to explore the secret gardens where the new sculptures will be installed.



WASHINGTON, DC.- O Museum in The Mansion and London-based Robert James Studio are thrilled to announce the "Through the Looking Glass Exhibition," a captivating showcase of unforgettable characters from Lewis Carroll's beloved book series and an array of classic children's literature favorites.

The exhibit, which opens November 28 at 5 pm, at 2020 O Street NW, will provide visitors with the opportunity to explore the secret gardens where the new sculptures will be installed, meet the sculptor James Coplestone, explore the O Museum's 100+ rooms and 87 secret doors, and enjoy complimentary Beefeaters Gin or Tea service with vintage teapot sets.

Reservations, required to attend the opening night event, are available at www.omuseum.org/alice.

"It's a chance to step into a whimsical world," said HH Leonards, founder of the O Museum in The Mansion, "where Alice, The Queen of Hearts, Winnie the Pooh, Piglet, Peter Rabbit, and many more iconic creations come to life through a mesmerizing ensemble of meticulously crafted bronze sculptures."

The genesis of this one-in-the-world exhibition traces back to the RHS Chelsea Flower Show in London, where Leonards, who created The Mansion and the O Museum in 1980, was captivated by a remarkable collection of handmade bronze sculptures.

The Robert James Studio, which created the exhibit, is a three-time, five-star winner at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show, considered the pinnacle of horticultural excellence in the UK. She approached Coplestone, the man behind these remarkable sculptures. She invited him to exhibit his work at the O Museum in The Mansion.

"My first thought," Leonards said, "was that there was an enormous opportunity for collaboration and cultural enrichment. Did you know Lewis Carroll was partially deaf, had a persistent stutter, and was a severe epileptic? Yet he was able to write 11 mathematical books and 14 fantasy adventures that are as cherished today as they were over 150 years ago. This exhibit embodies the simple truth: no matter your circumstances, you can rise above adversity and influence future generations with perseverance, love, and hope."

"This is truly an enchanting exhibition that will transport visitors back to the magical moments of their childhood, rekindling the wonder and nostalgia associated with these cherished literary characters," said Leonards.
