The Newport Art Museum has served its community through exceptional arts programming for over a century and has become a widely recognized destination for artists, scholars, students, innovators, arts enthusiasts, and cultural travelers from around the world.
Now in its second century, our Museum continues to serve over 20,000 participants from around the world and is an important cultural and civic gathering place for our community. The thought-provoking exhibitions and dynamic public programs have garnered national recognition and local awards. Our Museum School provides a wide range of art classes for students of all ages, backgrounds and experience levels. And our extensive community arts outreach serves nearly 1,000 individuals each year who would otherwise have little or no access to the arts.
A significant part of our Museum’s mission is to preserve our historically significant buildings, including the John N.A. Griswold House, designed by architect Richard Morris Hunt, and the Cushing Memorial Gallery completed in 1919/1920.
Your charitable and generous annual contributions and Museum memberships, which are 100% tax-deductible, make all we do possible and help ensure our sustained growth.
