Lyman Allyn Museum
Dr. Sylvia Yount, Chief Curator of American Art at the Metropolitan Museum of Art
Past as Present: Colonial Revivals
Join Sylvia Yount, newly appointed Lawrence A. Fleischman Curator in Charge of the American Wing at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, for a fresh look at America’s most enduring cultural phenomenon, the so-called Colonial Revival. As a direct outgrowth of this fascination with our nation’s past, the Met’s American Wing was founded in 1924 as a museum of historical interiors and Americana. Yount will explore how these roots have shaped the development of the Wing’s collections over the decades, and how they continue to inspire future growth and relevancy for 21st-century audiences.
