The Winter Show is the only showcase of its kind, having been established in 1954 by its own beneficiary, East Side House Settlement, a community-based organization serving the Bronx and Northern Manhattan. For 70 years, The Winter Show has bolstered East Side House’s mission to care for the individuals, families, and communities it serves by expanding opportunities through educational, job, and supportive services.

“In the 70 years that The Winter Show has shown in New York, it has consistently addressed the shifting role and value of art, antiques, and design within our communities,” said Helen Allen, Executive Director of The Winter Show. “We are thrilled to celebrate this momentous anniversary with returning presenters and patrons, while also welcoming new audiences to the Show and to the mission of East Side House. We are part of an exciting revival honoring objects that prioritize craftmanship and style. More importantly, each presentation honors a story of the past and its continued legacy in the present moment. The Winter Show offers a platform for a generation with renewed interest in design lead by storytelling, craftsmanship, and sustainability, and invites visitors to participate in an experience that also supports New Yorkers in need.”

  • 3 – 4pm | “A Collecting Dynasty: The Rockefeller Family(Board of Officers Room)

As passionate art collectors and philanthropists with an incredible range of interests that spanned the globe, the Rockefeller family, in so many ways, stands as the acme of patronage in this country. Throughout several generations, beginning with Abby and John D Rockefeller, Jr., their unwavering support for the visual arts was critical to the development of cultural institutions focused on the family members’ individual collecting interests, such as Asia Society, the Cloisters, Colonial Williamsburg and its Folk Art Museum, Japan Society, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and the Museum of Modern Art.  With the participation of two Asian art historians and museum professionals and a dealer of European Art, each of whom personally worked with or for members of the Rockefeller family over the past forty plus years, our discussion will focus on the legacy of multiple generations of Rockefellers, their remarkable collections, and lasting contributions to the world of art and antiques.
