Add to Calendar 11-11-2013 11-11-2014 15 Gilded New York Inaugurating the Museum's Tiffany & Co. Foundation Gallery, Gilded New York explores the city's visual culture at the end of the 19th century, when its elite class flaunted their money as never before. In New York, this era was marked by the sudden rise of industrial and corporate wealth, amassed by such titans as Cornelius Vanderbilt and Jay Gould, who expressed their high status through extravagant fashions, architecture, and interior design. The exhibition presents a lavish display of some 100 works, including costumes, jewelry, portraits, and decorative objects, all created between the mid-1870s and the early 20th century. The dazzling works in the exhibition will illuminate an era when members of the new American aristocracy often displayed their wealth in storied balls in Fifth Avenue mansions and hotels. It was a time when New York became the nation's corporate headquarters and a popular Ladies' Mile of luxury retail establishments and cultural institutions helped launch the city to global prominence. http://www.nymetroparents.com/2014neweventinfo.cfm?id=153493 Museum of the City of New York true DD/MM/YYYY
