Newport is lucky to be home to one of the best art museums in the Northeast. The Newport Art Museum is not only home to a fantastic collection of traditional and modern New England art, it also hosts great events throughout the year. So while a tour of the museum's exhibits is definitely on our list of recommendations for the guests of our boutique Newport hotels, we also love fall events at the Newport Art Museum for after-hours events that offer educational and entertaining cultural experiences. Enjoy these fall events at the Newport Art Museum next time you're on a lark to Newport.
Art After Dark: An Inflatable Lawn Party | September 13, 2018, 5-9pm
In a partnership with DESIGNxRI, September's monthly after-hours event at the Newport Art Museum features an inflatable playscape. Designed and built by the design collective Pneuhaus, the interactive exhibit features inflatable, lit shapes that fill the museum's grounds and beg to be explored. With a cash bar and light refreshments, this evening is sure to be a unique way to visit the Newport Art Museum. This event kicks off Design Week RI, another great series of events in Newport focused on art, design, and community.
Fall Exhibitions Opening Reception | September 28, 2018, 5-7pm
Get a first look at the Newport Art Museum's fall exhibits at this opening reception. Two exhibits open for the fall—a Lalla Essaydi's photography. Her works explore gender roles and stereotypes in her life spent in Morocco and America, while The Shapes of Birds is a collection of works from various artists around the themes of migration, identity, and history. Enjoy an evening exploring these two new exhibits with a cash bar and remarks from the museum's curator. See the museum's event calendar for more fall events at the Newport Art Museum.
