Please join us for the annual 99x (Times) Party, as we recreate glamorous Newport, Rhode Island, the seaside playground of the Vanderbilts, the Astors, and the Rockefellers.

This year's event will raise funds to restore the glow to noted Luminist painter John Frederick Kensett's Shore Landscape, Newport which was acquired by the Museum in 1949. Kensett was an influential member of the Hudson River School and a founder of the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

99x: Gilded Coast Glamour is a costumed evening adorned and aglow with contemporary style and fashions inspired by Gilded Age Newport. As guests eat, drink, and dance the night away, they will encounter illuminated coastal murals and enter living art tableaus featuring modern takes on the historic interiors of Newport's radiant mansions, as envisioned by the hottest local artists, tastemakers, and trendsetters.

Creative, lustrous cocktail attire encouraged. Join the revelry and help us bring this important painting back to life by bringing it “back to light.” #GiltGlam
