Oct
25
Wed
Museum Exhibitions, Visual Arts

Royal Splendor: The Coronation Gown from The Crown, the first in a new Winterthur exhibition series entitled Eye on the Iconic, will feature the replica coronation gown worn in episode five, “Smoke and Mirrors,” of the Netflix series The Crown, a dramatized history of the reign of Queen Elizabeth II. Like the richly symbolic centuries-old coronation ceremony, the coronation dress is iconic—one of the most celebrated dresses of the 20th century and a symbol of a historical moment witnessed by millions around the world. The replica dress is also a true icon, created in celebration of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.  
 
Join us this fall beginning October 20, 2017, to view this very special dress and experience the rich connections an object like this one makes between the Queen, her people, and the world through the celebration and memory of important historical moments. And look for future presentations in the Eye on the Iconic series, each highlighting a single remarkable object.

Creating Brilliance: A 21st-Century Look at 19th-Century Lighting

Winterthur Museum, Garden & Library

Oct
27
Fri
Visual Arts

Join lighting specialists and enthusiasts, museum and historic house curators, students, and preservation and technology experts for a two-day symposium focused on material and social histories of artificial light in North American interiors.

 

During the nascent era of electrical lighting, Winterthur Museum’s founder Henry Francis du Pont sought to balance desires for modernity and authenticity in the rooms and spaces he created. The dialogue between artificial light and decorative arts remains pertinent today. Please join us for these illuminating conversations and live demonstrations of nineteenth-century lighting devices. For more information, download our conference brochure.

 

Registration is open. There are three ways to register: print, complete form, and mail with payment to Winterthur Information and Tours Office, 5105 Kennett Pike, Winterthur, Delaware 19735 or fax to 302.888.4953; or call 800.448.3883. Download our scholarship application.
