Gilded Age Glamour

WHEN:

From February 13th 2016 to April 30th 2016
Paid Entry ($5)

WHERE:

Bartow Pell Mansion Museum, 895 Shore Road, Pelham Bay Park, New York, 10464

WHAT:

The Gilded Age in American history (c. 1870-1900) was associated with opulence and luxury, especially in clothing styles. This exhibition features highlights from the Museum’s fashion collection from these decades, including women’s, men's, and children’s garments as well as period fashion illustrations. Yet the fashions on display are more than just glamorous – they reveal the larger ideas about marriage and children, family life, and private and public space that shaped the United States at this time.

"Gilded Age Glamour" also explores connections between the collection and the history of the Bartow-Pell Mansion Museum. The fashions displayed link the Mansion’s beginnings as a grand country home in the mid-19th century with its development as a museum in the twentieth century.
