Anything You Want: A Closer Look at Treasures from Newport’s Gilded Age

May 27 @ 10:00 am - October 30 @ 3:00 pm

This exhibition offers a close-up look at more than 100 objects from the Newport Mansions that many visitors might not notice while touring the houses. Yet these objects are among the treasures of the the Preservation Society’s collections. They were crafted in many different countries and periods, but all of them were collected and appreciated during the Gilded Age (approximately 1865 to 1915). Visiting Curator Ulysses Grant Dietz also aims to answer the question: Why did people of the Gilded Age desire such things?
