The Sanford-Covell Villa Marina is located in the quiet historic district, The Point. It is a perfect waterfront location with an amazing wraparound piazza which affords magnificent views of Narragansett Bay and the Newport Bridge. An article in the Boston Journal of August 9, 1870 calls it ‘the most elegantly finished house ever built in Newport’ and the house is now on the ‘National Register of Historic Places.’

An early work of the Boston architects, Fehmer and Emerson, this house is exceptional for its interior decoration in the Pompeian style. Irregular in shape, the house is excellently adapted for summer living along the shore. The surrounding open porches further establish the relationship to the sea.

The sunsets from the Piazza are a spectacular delight and this porch has become a virtual Newport Icon.

The Arts and Cultural Alliance (ACA) of Newport County presents an Arts Behind the Scenes event featuring the Audrain Automobile Museum, “Transitions”. The event is scheduled during the transition between themed shows. Discussion will include the Exhibition Statement, the War Board, the individual car exhibition storyboards, graphics development, and iPad stories. Also marketing/promotion, lighting and the practicalities associated with swapping the cars in and out, and security.

“More of an Art Museum than a Car Museum,” the Museum celebrates the Machine Age, when art and automobiles came together. With access to more than 200 of the most remarkable and rare vehicles ever made, and displays with fully restored vehicles ranging from the beginning of the 20th century through the modern day, vehicles are chosen specifically and showcased based
on ever-changing exhibition themes. By displaying 15-20 cars at a time, the Museum gives patrons members and enthusiasts of all ages a completely unique experience with each visit. To support its non-profit curatorial mission – its motto is “Preserving Newport’s History One Car At A Time,” the Museum acquires, by gift and purchase, cars with social history in Newport, Rhode Island, and southern New England.

The Audrain Automobile Museum is located at 222 Bellevue Ave, Newport, RI 02842. For more information about the Audrain Automobile Museum visit http://audrainautomuseum.org/ Contact information: (401) 856-4420 or info@audrainautomuseum.org
