Dilettanti Grand Tour Stop Number One: Tim Mullen's Astounding Private Collection of Victorian Electronica Sponsored by Hendrick's Gin!
Hope you can join us for the first iteration of our new venture--The Dilettanti Grand Tour--in the astounding private collection of Tim Mullen! The event will take place November 14 at 8:00pm; tickets are extremely limited and are available here.
Loosely inspired by the Dilettanti Society, a society of 18th century aristocrats and scholars eager to share their love of art and knowledge around a good drink, we’re now embarking on a Grand Tour of the most unique private collections for a series of one-night only celebrations of all things arcane and spectacular. We’ll have drinks compliments of our kind sponsor Hendrick's Gin, we’ll have snacks, and we’ll see amazing things usually hidden behind closed doors.
Tonight's iteration will bring you in to the home of Tim Mullen, a New York based engineer with a mind-blowing collection of strange and beautiful examples of Victorian Electronica, most of which actually work! The collection ranges from antique x-ray devices to a Pre WWII TV to a funeral fan with illuminated religious figures to a “Victorian Teleport.”
To give you a sense of what's in store, above is a episode of The Midnight Archive featuring Tim and his astounding collection, directed by our filmmaker in residence Ronni Thomas.
Hope to see you there!
