            The Lockwood-Mathews Mansion Museum will celebrate the new 2013 season with an Opening Night Gala & Exhibitions Preview at the Mansion on April 13 at 7:00pm.  During the evening, co-chaired by Mimi Findlay of New Canaan and Kim Morque of Rye, New York, guests will have the opportunity to get a first look the Mansion’s two new exhibits.  What Is It? Technologies and Discoveries of the Victorian Era features 19th century technological and scientific marvels of the Mansion’s heyday.  Steampunk:  Nature & Machine showcases artwork of this neo-retro aesthetic movement that borrows imagery from the Industrial Revolution. 

                The black tie evening includes cocktails, a silent auction and dinner, catered by Michael Gilmartin of Outdoor Cookers.  It features a special presentation by history of technology luminary Steven Lubar, Professor of the Departments of American Studies, History, and History of Art and Architecture at Brown University.

                 The Museum Gala is sponsored by David Findlay Jr.  Gallery, Spinnaker Real Estate Partners, LLC, Moran Towing Corporation and media sponsor Connecticut Cottages and Gardens.    The Museum’s 2013 cultural and educational programs are made possible by generous funding from the LMMM Distinguished Benefactors: The Xerox Foundation, Klaff’s, Mrs. Cynthia C. Brown and The Maurice Goodman Foundation.  The Museum’s Education Program is made possible in part by a generous donation from AT&T.

                The exhibit, What Is It?
