Newport RI, Cushing Gallery

The Museum has its origin in the Art Association of Newport, which later became the Newport Art Association, and remains one of the oldest continuously operating art associations in the United States. The association started during the art colony and Impressionist movements and was connected to the New York art scene. In 1916 the Association acquired the Griswold House to use as a gallery.
