GARRISON, NY.- Boscobel House and Gardens announces its 2018 exhibition, Campaign Furniture: The March of Portable Design, featuring two dozen 18th- and 19th- century examples that are as functional as they are elegant. Collapsible chairs, tables, beds, and more were once considered essential equipment for military officers, Hudson River School artists, and well-heeled tourists. These ingeniously designed objects document the desire for the comforts of home, even when out on the road.

Campaign Furniture was inspired by Boscobel’s renowned collection of New York furniture, the rich military and artistic history of the Hudson River Valley, and the tens of thousands of picnickers who bring their own stylish equipment to Boscobel every summer.

Campaign Furniture: The March of Portable Design opened on Saturday, August 25 and runs through Sunday, November 4. Admission is included with tickets to the house or grounds.

All are welcome at the opening reception on Sunday, August 26 from 4:30-6:30pm. Immediately following Military Reenactment Day, enjoy an insider’s look at the exhibition, installed in the Gallery and throughout the Historic House Museum, with light refreshments. The reception is free, but advance reservations are appreciated via boscobel.org. Donations are welcome. Guests interested in attending Hudson Valley Shakespeare Festival’s 7:30 performance of Richard II are encouraged to purchase tickets in advance via hvshakespeare.org.

In the fall, Boscobel will offer a host of programs related to the exhibition.
