Isabella Stewart Gardner was famous for her festive "salons"—gatherings of artists, musicians, and friends.

Get to know other new members at this special event inspired by Isabella's own reveal of her beautiful Museum and courtyard. Enjoy light refreshments, live music, and access to Henry James and American Painting—including a spotlight talk offering insight into the close friendship between Gardner and James.
