On Friday, September 22nd, 2023 from 2-3:30pm on Zoom and streamed to the Kingsley Room, join us for a virtual program about the art and architecture of the New England coast.
From artist colonies to robber baron “summer cottages,” the New England shoreline has inspired countless creative works. Join us as we explore seascapes by beloved American artists including Winslow Homer and Edward Hopper as well as the over-the-top elegance of Newport, RI summer homes designed for the titans of industry in the nineteenth century. Gloucester's eccentric summer retreat Beauport is also featured.
