From artist colonies to robber baron “summer cottages,” the New England shoreline has inspired countless creative works. This program will look at seascapes and shorelines by beloved American artists including Winslow Homer and Edward Hopper as well as the over-the-top elegance of Newport, RI summer homes designed for the titans of industry in the nineteenth century. Gloucester’s eccentric summer retreat Beauport will also be featured in this program.
