With over 9,000 objects in the Rough Point collection it is impossible to cover everything on the standard house tour. Want to learn more? Join us for an evening of short gallery talks led by our expert staff that spotlight lesser known stories in the collection. Past topics include: “The Real Housewives of Renaissance France,” “Art Undressed,” “The Glamour Girls of Newport,” and many more!
This year's exhibition, Waterscapes: Islamic Architecture & Art from Doris Duke's Shangri La, will be available for viewing during this program.
Tonight's topics include:
- Art Undressed: The Portraits of Joshua Reynolds
- Tiny Trinkets in Doris Duke's Bedroom
- The Music Room from Nanaline to Doris
- The Philanthropy of the Duke Family
Gallery talks begin at 5:15 pm and rotate throughout the evening. Space is limited and advance registration is recommended. Tickets may be purchased at the door, subject to availability.
