A Closer Look at Designing for Doris w/ David Webb archivists, Dianne Batista & Lev Higgs

Ahp 0009 Ahp 0018

David Webb archivists Dianne Batista and Levi Higgs will explore the intersecting interests of David Webb and Doris Duke in this special tour of Designing for Doris: David Webb Jewelry and Newport’s Architectural Gems. The tour will touch on the curatorial process and the commitment to beauty and design that drew two creative minds together. Space is limited and advance registration is strongly recommended.

An open house will follow the tours, during which tour participants and the general public are invited to linger in the special exhibition galleries and explore Rough Point. Light refreshments will be served.

This event is one of many during our 2018 season that celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Newport Restoration Foundation, by looking back at — and sometimes reviving — what Doris Duke and others were up to around the time of its founding.

These events are being recorded and photographed. By attending, you give your consent to be photographed, filmed, taped, and/or recorded.
