Winterthur continually plans for exciting new exhibitions for our Members and visitors to view.

In celebration of the 100th anniversary year of the 19th amendment, Re-Vision 20/20: Through a Woman’s Lens looks at objects in the Winterthur galleries through the lens of women’s stories, recognizing the everyday women who forged a better path for themselves, and ultimately for future generations, in creative, intellectual, and entrepreneurial ways.
April 14, 2020 – January 3, 2021
This jewel-box sized exhibit answers the often-asked question: Was there a Mrs. du Pont? Ruth Wales du Pont was a vivacious social figure, talented musician, and hostess of four houses. See her beautiful wedding gown, fabulously reproduced, as well as personal items from the Winterthur Archives.

Erica Wilson: A Life in Stitches looks closely at the life and work of Erica Wilson, the “Julia Child of needlework.” Wilson’s successful 1970s television program teaching needlework was one component of business ventures that included embroidery kits, books, newspaper and magazine columns, public appearances, and a store bearing her name on New York's Madison Avenue.
