Peacock Room Shutters Open
Mar 21 @ 12:00 pm – 5:30 pm

See the Peacock Room in a whole new light! When the shutters of Whistler’s “harmony in blue and gold” are open, a flood of natural light turns the Peacock Room into a glowing jewel of blue, green, and gold tones. Details, colors, and textures are revealed in the sunlight—and a special filtering film on the windows minimizes fading.
