Savannah Families Abroad: The Consumption of Culture in the 19th Century 

When: Through March 10, 2019
In the 19th century, wealthy Americans enjoyed extensive explorations of Europe, many traveling to the continent multiple times in their lives. They formed their own Grand Tour, modeled on the British custom of exploring classical sites in Italy. These American travelers collected art and furnishings along the way. Savannah Families Abroad: The Consumption of Culture in the 19th Century will feature many of the lavish souvenirs wealthy Americans procured to commemorate their journey and as marks of their own refinement.
