We recently had an event at the Museum and this is what Chas Miller had to say about it: 

"From start to finish, working with Kathleen Geasey and the team at Russell Morin was a delight. And that delight turned into a delicious and gracious evening for a private dinner at the Newport Art Museum. Our evening was done in honor of great friend from England, who is a Museum Director. We could think of no better or more interesting spot than the Griswold House of the Newport Art Museum for such an occasion. It was important to us to have a great location as friends were coming in from Boston, New York to join us along with local friends. With flowers by Paul Eckhart of Broadway Floral Designs, the evening surpassed our best expectations. The great wait staff greeted guests and passed delectable hors d’oeuvres. Our group of 12 also enjoyed the chance to view the galleries and current exhibitions, before sitting down for a seated dinner. Candles glowed around the library room (thank you Duracell) and guests dined on a multi-course delicious meal... making one believe it had just come out from one’s own kitchen and by one’s one chef. Thank you to the teams at Russell Morin and the Newport Art Museum - we could not have hoped for a better experience!"
