Event Description

On View May 27 through September 26, 2022


This groundbreaking exhibition tracks the deep, pervasive, and continuing influence of the historic female domestic craft tradition in the practice of contemporary women artists and invites new investigations into the position of women in the contemporary art world. Over one hundred and twenty-five historic and contemporary works by women artists fill the Lyndhurst Mansion and gallery.


Contemporary works, created after 1970 by American women artists, are placed in conversation next to historic antecedents from the 18th and 19th century in the mansion, a domestic setting for which the historic works were originally designed. The objective of the exhibition is to establish the significance of this influence, whether specific or subtle, and to highlight the diversity of artists, whether by race, class, or geographic location, who were influenced.  The exhibition gallery, included in the tour showcases additional pieces of historic and contemporary art.


The exhibition is mounted jointly with Historic New England, which will be providing much of the historic materials to be exhibited alongside the contemporary works. 


The ninety-minute in-depth docent lead tour explores the exhibit gallery and two mansion floors and explains the significance of the artwork. A limited number of tickets are available for each tour. Present your tickets to the Welcome Center Staff when checking in for your tour.


Groups, please call in advance for reservations.


For everyone’s safety, Lyndhurst requires masks in indoor spaces.  As in any public setting, we cannot guarantee that you will not be exposed to COVID-19. By visiting Lyndhurst, you voluntarily assume such risks.
