Exhibition | The Jane Austen Reading Room

Now on view at Mia:

Living Rooms: The Jane Austen Reading Room

Minneapolis Institute of Art, 21 November 2015 — 26 June 2016

This installation situates Jane Austen in a unique period room setting. Taking up two of Mia’s well-loved English interiors—the Queen Anne room and the Georgian Drawing room—this display will discuss Austen’s habits as a reader and writer, recreate scenes from her novel Emma (celebrating its 200th birthday in 2015), and invite museum visitors to read works that Austen read, wrote, or inspired. This project is part of Living Rooms, an initiative to present Mia’s historic interiors and decorative arts collections in new ways.
