What is Athenaeum?

Athenaeum is an annual non-competitive Arts & Sciences exhibition event hosted by the Barony of Madrone.

Usually held in June, Athenaeum has become the largest arts and sciences display event in the Kingdom of An Tir and is highly anticipated every year.

Due to health concerns, in 2020 and 2021 we held the event virtually and the idea for an online Athenaeum Showcase was born.

Browse the amazing array of online exhibits or visit us in June 2024 in Kirkland, WA for the next in-person Athenaeum event!

Welcome to Madrone

We are overjoyed at the success of our first Virtual Athenaeum which took place on July 18, 2020 and we look forward to more stops along the Road to Athenaeum in the months ahead.  It was wonderful to see the works of artisans and join with you in positive community.

We especially look forward to welcoming the artisans of An Tir back to Athenaeum again in the summer of 2021.

— Enzio & Spike, Baron and Baroness of Madrone
