    Decorative Arts Study Group

    Do you want to know more about the decorative arts at Hill-Stead?
    Hill-Stead’s Decorative Arts Study Group is a members-based group that was formed to focus on the museum’s many extraordinary examples of what are often called the “minor arts” – furniture, textiles, ivory, metalwork and the host of other items that today might fall under the description “interior decoration.”
