What’s Happening at T.C. Steele

Activity and serenity coexist naturally at T.C. Steele State Historic Site. Art- and nature-related programs and events fit well into this peaceful and inspiring setting, providing a variety of year-round activities for all ages.



Sundays at Home

Once each month this summer we will be recreating the Steeles’ Sunday at Home events, during which the Steeles would entertain their neighbors with activities, entertainment, and in some cases, light refreshments. Admission to Sunday at Home events is covered in the regular tour of the historic buildings fee. These are family-friendly events, so take a look at your calendar and bring the whole family! Remember the family discount–$20.00 is the maximum any family pays, regardless of how many relatives you bring along!

This summer, our Sundays at Home will be:

Sunday, June 14, 2015:  Drop in to practice the dying art of letter writing. Come read some of Steele’s beautiful letters, and try your hand at writing letters to loved ones–we’ll provide the paper and the ink, and even post the letters from here!

Sunday, July 19, 2015: An old fashioned ice cream social! Come see a demonstration of our hand-cranked ice cream churn at 2 p.m. and give the results a taste test. We’ll be serving ice cream until 4 p.m. Rain or shine.

Sunday, August 9, 2015: Our last Sunday at Home event of the summer! Come for an outdoor Yoga class on the site, led by Lee Edgren of River Light Yoga Studio in Nashville! Lee will be offering outdoor Yoga classes at T.C. Steele this Fall.

Exploring the Landscape of the Body: T.C. Steele-Inspired Yoga  …

How can our connection with the Brown County landscape, as experienced at the T.C. Steele State Memorial, become a doorway into yoga asana and pranayama?  How can T.C. Steele’s artistic observations inform that practice? Join Lee Edgren, MS, ERYT500,  at  2 p.m. Sunday, August 9, for a painterly, all-levels practice. Those without yoga experience are especially welcome.  Bring a yoga mat or blanket. Wear comfortable clothing that is loose or stretchy around the waist, and be prepared to take off your shoes.  We will be getting down to and up from the ground.   Those with specific questions are welcome to call Lee at 812-988-9642.



Stay tuned for 2015 schedule.
