Outside In: Nature-inspired Design at Winterthur

Next Event:
Saturday, November 27, 2021

The connection to nature is evident everywhere at Winterthur and it greatly influenced Henry Francis du Pont’s design aesthetic, one that has inspired other designers ever since. In conjunction with the Delaware Museum of Natural History (DMNH), this exhibition will explore all facets of this connection to the natural world, from Winterthur’s decorative arts and library collections to the design sensibility of the house and garden to the natural specimens in DMNH’s collection. This visually eclectic and immersive installation will capture the imagination of visitors of all ages with objects ranging from a hornet’s nest to shells, minerals, and fossils to exquisite inlaid cabinetry and shellwork grottos.
