Sprawling estates, cliff-edged seascapes and a veritable fleet of gleaming yachts set the scene for Atlantic town, Newport, with galleries, museums and colorful festivals on hand to lend cultural ambiance.
Housed in the historic Griswold House,a prime example of American Stick Style architecture, the Newport Art Museum merits a stop both for a closer look at this National Historic Landmark and for the fine art exhibits inside, which include a broad selection of works by artists like John La Farge and Fitz Henry Lane but also range to contemporary artists like Dale Chihuly and Robert Hamita. The museum offers a range of art classes through the associated school, as well as regularly changing special exhibits that pull from both its permanent collection and the works of regional artists.
