The highpoint of the New York Winter season is the Winter Antiques Show at the Park Avenue Armory. This vetted show features the finest antiques and art currently on the market from around the globe. Showcasing over 70 expert dealers, the show includes gala events, tours and lectures, all drawing an impressive range of international visitors. The show, which benefits the East Side House Settlement in the South Bronx, has Chubb as its presenting sponsor for the 21st year,
An annual feature of the Winter Show is its loan exhibition, which this year honors the Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Folk Art Museum in Williamsburg, Virginia. This museum is the oldest museum in the country exclusively dedicated to collecting, preserving and displaying American Folk Art. Among the treasures that will be on display are iconic quilts, pottery, furniture and frakturs from the Aldrich collection.
