Come one, come all to the South Knoxville Arts & Heritage GREY GARDENS HALLOWEEN PARTY at the Candoro Marble building in Vestal!
With the support of countless volunteers, boosters and donations the South Knoxville Arts & Heritage committee is hosting a Grey Gardens themed Haloween party at the historic building.
Unfamiliar with "Grey Gardens"?
The essence of the theme is a celebration of eccentricity, nonconformism and basic indifference to status quo. Grey Gardens was the name of a documentary movie about Edith "Big Edie" Ewing Bouvier Beale and her daughter Edith "Little Edie" Bouvier Beale. These two ladies were the aunt and first cousin of Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy Onassis who lived at Grey Gardens, a decrepit 28-room mansion at 3 [REMOVED] in the wealthy Georgica Pond neighborhood of East Hampton, New York.
They lived in isolation, rarely leaving the house or grounds, and in squalor without electricity or running water. The women exhibited some degree of compulsive hoarding, and allowed raccoons and cats to live in their mansion reducing their residence to just one room.
If you are a Knoxvillian this may not seem too out of the ordinary, but these ladies were high society types living in the richest of New York outskirts, and relatives of Jackie Onassis!
If this narrative interests you please research the topic more and watch the movie. These characters are inspiring and possessing even as they teeter the fine line of mental instability.
