The Newport Symposium was initiated in 1993 as a forum for the study and discussion of a diverse range of arts and historical issues. The audience consists of academics, collectors, major donors to and trustees of museums and arts foundations, museum directors and curators, and professional furniture appraisers and art dealers.
The 21st annual Newport Symposium
April 28 to May 1, 2013
What far away palaces, villas and temples are yet to be discovered? What great works of art, furniture, silver and jewelry are sitting in the vaults of great museums, private collections and libraries that have never been seen? The 21st annual Newport Symposium will explore the rarest and finest objects, from finely crafted chairs and old master drawings to exquisite porcelain from all corners of the globe. Lectures will examine the most remote, hard-to-see historic sites, and the remarkable stories of art treasures that have been lost and then reclaimed. Join us for a diverse cultural and artistic feast.
