SAINT AUGUSTINE, FLORIDA
The Lightner Museum welcomes Mr. Nicholas Dawes, antiquarian and antiques appraiser from PBS’s popular television program, Antiques Roadshow. Mr. Dawes will host two events during his visit to St. Augustine. The events are part of Lightner Museum’s fall programming schedule, which seeks to highlight the Dressing Downton™ exhibition.
Mr. Dawes will host a special after dinner champagne reception in the Lightner Museum’s lobby. The Dressing Downton™ exhibition will be open to view during this reception.
The events are part of a program companion series to Lightner Museum’s exhibition: Dressing Downton: Changing Fashions for Changing Times™, a thirteen-week display of 36 authentic Edwardian Era costumes and accessories from PBS’s most popular television drama in history, Dressing Downton™, which will be elegantly displayed in the Museum’s Grand Ballroom Gallery beginning this fall.
Proceeds from the events benefit the Lightner Museum. The Lightner Museum is a non-profit cultural institution sustained by the generous support of individuals, businesses, and sponsors.
A gracious “thank you” to Flagler College and Casa Monica Hotel for being the host venues for Dawe’s programming.
These events are funded in part by the Community Foundation for Northeast Florida, the St. Johns Tourist Development Council, and Visit Florida.
