Newport Museum of Art Tips (1)

Newport Museum of Art

The museum is housed in the Griswold House which is a National Historic Landmark. Originally designed in 1862 by famed architect Richard Morris Hunt, it was completed in 1864 for John N.A. Griswold, a China Trade merchant and financier. The building was recently restored and currently houses restored rooms, galleries, a children’s art classroom, administrative offices and a lecture hall. The musuem's collections and exhibits main focus are on the visual arts of Newport and southeastern New England.

Many of the featured collections are works by Lydia Field Emmett, Fitz Henry Lane, George Inness, John Frederick Kensett, Gilbert Stuart, William Trost Richards, John La Farge, Howard Gardiner Cushing, George Bellows, and Helena Sturtevant.

There are also contemporary artists that are represented in the collection like Dale Chihuly (one of my personal favorite), Howard Ben Tre, James Baker, Rita Rogers, and Joseph Norman.

Open Monday-Saturday 10:00-4:00 pm; Sunday 12:00-5:00
