STUDY TRIPS ABROAD

The Decorative Arts Trust organizes biannual Study Trips Abroad that explore the origin and transfer of design and style in architecture and the decorative and fine arts between Europe and America. Our participants benefit from meeting local experts for lectures and collection tours and enjoying exclusive, behind-the-scenes visits to private properties, while staying in elegant accommodations and reveling in the opportunity to explore the great museums and historic sites of the Continent and British Isles, both on and off the beaten path. Study Trips Abroad are open to members at the Benefactor level and above. Join today!
