Cheekwood is a 55-acre botanical garden and art museum located on the historic Cheek estate. Originally built as the home of Leslie and Mabel Cheek in 1929, Cheekwood is one of the finest examples of an American Country Place Era estate. Since being converted into a museum of art and botanical garden in 1960, Cheekwood has presented world-class art exhibitions, spectacular gardens and an historic estate unlike anything else. Each year, Cheekwood welcomes over 225,000 visitors, making it one of the city’s top cultural attractions, with approximately 14,000 member households. Visitors enjoy family activities, programming for all ages and year-round festivals celebrating the four seasons. From 150,000 blooming bulbs in the spring to one mile of holiday lights in the winter, there’s always something to see at Cheekwood.
About the Mansion Tour (Optional)
In light of the 100th anniversary of women’s suffrage in the United States, Women to Watch: Celebrating the Centennial of Women’s Suffrage presents works from Cheekwood’s works on paper collection by female artists. With objects by Ruth Chaney, Helen Frankenthaler, Laura Grosch, Lee Krasner, Clare Leighton, Liliane Lijn, Barbara Morgan, and Beverly Pepper, the exhibition allows the viewer to recognize the strength in the points of view of the female artist, seeing where those voices resonate, and their impact on the canon of art history. Many of the artists in the show were often viewed as secondary to their more famous male counterparts, whether that was their husbands, or their contemporaries. This show allows the work to be seen on its own, without that relational identity. The artists in this show, much like the suffragists, were fighting to have their voices be heard. This exhibition invites the viewer to consider and embrace a different focus within art’s history, to see the unseen and value the undervalued.

So you’ve burned through your Netflix queue, talked to family and friends countless times via Zoom and picked up and put down more hobbies than you’d like to admit over these last few months of Covid-19 lockdowns — what’s next? For those looking for a bit more interaction and participation in their entertainment, we have the answer for you: a virtual escape room!
Just like physical escape rooms, digital escape rooms provide a challenging adventure for you and your friends, family or loved-ones. You’ll get the same cooperative gameplay, puzzles and tasks to overcome as you all work towards a shared goal — escaping the room, except it’s all virtual. And to kick up the intensity a notch, you and your crew will only have a limited amount of time to do it.
For nearly two centuries, the hope of gold has lured people to the hills of Northern
California. No one was captivated more than Clyde Hamilton, a greedy gold prospector
who loved to gamble. Clyde made too many bets with the wrong crowd and now he’s
missing. You’ve been tipped off to where he stashed his gold.. but so has the mob.
Find it first!
