Thank you to all who supported the annual 99x (Times) Party. Over 400 guests joined us as we recreated glamorous Newport, Rhode Island, the seaside playground of the Vanderbilts, the Astors, and the Rockefellers.

This event raised over $20,000 for the Museum's Preservation & Conservation Fund, with an emphasis on restoring the glow to noted Luminist painter John Frederick Kensett's Shore Landscape, Newport which was acquired by the Museum in 1949. Kensett was an influential member of the Hudson River School and a founder of the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

 99x: Gilded Coast Glamour featured  food, beverages, live music, and twenty illuminated coastal murals and living art tableaus featuring modern takes on the historic exteriors and interiors of Newport's radiant mansions, as envisioned by the hottest local artists, tastemakers, and trendsetters.

Thank you for helping us raise the funds needed to bring this important painting back to life by bringing it “back to light.” Once conservation work is complete, Kensett's Shore Landscape, Newport will rotate into our Creating an American Identity exhibition of our permanent collection. #GiltGlam
