Gilded New York: Gallery Tour

The Gilded Age of the late 19th and early 20th centuries was a time of unprecedented wealth and extravagance, when New York City’s elite poured money into beautiful costumes, jewelry, furnishings, and artwork to fill their luxurious mansions and show off at lavish balls and dinner parties. Join curator Jeannine Falino for a tour exploring the visual culture of New York’s Gilded Age elite, and that culture’s far-reaching influence on American art and design—and ultimately on the city and the nation’s changing identity. Free with Museum admission.
