Collective Perspectives: Reviving Colonial Furniture (Virtual)

July 14, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm



Join the Newport Restoration Foundation and its Whitehorne House Museum for a series of online discussions that explore why Americans routinely seek inspiration from the material culture and personalities of British, colonial America.  In other words, “Why do we return to the Colonial Revival?”

Beginning at 7:00 pm, every Wednesday night in July, we will host a variety of scholars, artisans, and museum professionals to discuss the profound impact 18th century aesthetics and history had and continue have on American culture.

July 14th Reviving Colonial Furniture: Steven Brown, a former member of the cabinet and furniture making faculty for 21 years at the North Bennet St. School in Boston, and Mickey Callahan, the co- founder and past president of the Society of American Period Furniture Makers will discuss why they find inspiration and excitement in recreating the forms and styles of 18th-century American furniture.

Please RSVP to Dr. Erik Greenberg at to receive free access to the online discussions. Attendance to every session is not required.
