Current exhibit: "Gilded New York"
The newest exhibit is "Gilded New York," inaugurating the museum's Tiffany & Co. Foundation Gallery. "Gilded New York" explores New York City’s visual culture at the end of the 19th century, when its elite class flaunted their money as never before. The exhibition presents nearly 100 works, including costumes, jewelry, portraits, and decorative objects. The dazzling display illuminates an era when the new American aristocracy embraced lavish displays of wealth, New York became the nation’s corporate headquarters, and a Ladies’ Mile of luxury retail establishments and cultural institutions helped launch the city to global prominence.
