In collaboration with the Newport Historical Society
May 29, 2021 — August 22, 2021
The Audrain is excited to collaborate with the Newport Historical Society to display a special exhibition at two venues highlighting previously unexamined collection of clothing and accessories belonging to three Vanderbilt women of New York and Newport. American women moved more into the shared center of national social life in the early 20th century – working, sporting, and driving for travel and for pleasure. Fashion was required to make an adjustment, and Newport and the automobile were at the center of this transformation.
The exhibit will be featured at the Audrain Automobile Museum at 222 Bellevue Avenue, Newport, RI and at the Newport Historical Society at 82 Touro Street, Newport, RI. When visiting the exhibits, please present your ticket from one institution to receive discounted admission at the other.
