Part of the Artistry Above Ground Virtual Market on Saturday, May 30, 2020 at 5:00 pm
In this fascinating talk, we will be joined by Ed Snyder, who is one of our vendors for the Artistry Above Ground virtual market. Mr. Snyder is a Biomedical Engineer at an academic medical center, where he has been involved in research, development, and clinical practice of advanced cardio-pulmonary life support for babies. His passion pursuit is being a cemetery blogger and photographer, thus, his interests literally run from the cradle to the grave. The bridge? No matter how disparate medicine and art may appear, there is a connectedness—while they are not considered sciences, there is a precision to each, borne of technology, that is necessary for their success.
Normally, Ed doesn’t find himself checking tide tables before going on a photographic excursion to a cemetery. But when he started to research Philadelphia’s defunct Monument Cemetery, he needed to take into account the tides of the Delaware River to see the tombstones and scour archives to find out how they got there. His talk will unearth secrets of Philadelphia’s largest vanished Victorian graveyard, both under water and above ground.
This talk will take place on Saturday, May 30, 2020 at 5:00 pm, virtually through a Zoom meeting. A What to Expect email will be sent to all ticket holders before the talk starts with information on how to log in.
Ticket pricing is $10/General Admission, $8/Seniors (65 & Up), $8/Students with ID, & $5/Members.
