2023 Colloquium Lecture Recordings Now Online
January 22, 2023, marked another successful Emerging Scholars Colloquium, this time in the stunning Board of Officers Room at New York City’s Park Avenue Armory, home of The Winter Show. The room is one of the few surviving Herter Brothers interiors in the country and provided an impressive setting for the presentations.
The 7th Annual Colloquium was generously sponsored by the Classical American Homes Preservation Trust (CAHPT) and Mr. & Mrs. Donald B. Ayres III.
We hope you enjoy watching our presenters’ new discoveries and perspectives on the decorative arts.
