Virtual: The Glories of Newport -- A Look Into Those Magnificent Mansions
Tuesday, May 2, 2023
Who says we can’t dream? This illustrated talk takes us into some of the grandest rooms ever created in this country…a world away and yet so close! Fancy tea in a Chinese teahouse? Not a problem for Mrs. Alva Vanderbilt. Need a spot for 200 dinner guests? Easy, if your home is The Breakers. Join us on an armchair tour of the finest houses in America.
Led by art historian Mary Woodward, who serves as a guide at several Historic New England properties. She previously served as Public Programs Coordinator and Educator at the Concord Museum. Woodward has a B.A. in Art History from Furman University and a M.A. in Art History from Emory University. She has 40+ years of experience in museums of all shapes and sizes, from the comprehensive collection at the Cleveland Museum of Art to the one-room log cabin birthplace of President James K. Polk.
