What’s new at The Mount for 2015? Summer programming is back, SculptureNow returns, and we’re really excited about several new initiatives, including:
- Long term loan period furnishings from The Preservation Society of Newport County that breathe life into Wharton’s home.
- The opening of two new innovative and engaging exhibits, which include the generous contributions of several friends!
- Pay once, visit often! An admission ticket to The Mount is now valid for seven days.
- A very successful Opening Day on May 16! To celebrate, we asked Mount staff, what do you look forward to about opening day?
“The house and gardens being full of visitors enjoying this very special place that Edith Wharton created.” -Rebecka McDougall, Communications Director
“Easy! Being outside on the Terrace all day long – working in the Terrace Café!” -Lynn Sciacca, Café Manager
“I think I’m most excited to welcome people and activity back to the property. It gets lonely here in the winter months, without the constant stream of visitors passing through the gates, and I’m looking forward to unexpected encounters and conversations with both new and familiar faces.” -Kelsey Mullen, Director of Public Programs and Education
