Living Rooms: Jane Austen

Minneapolis Institute of Art


This installation situates one of the greatest authors of English literature, 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 Room—this immersive experience will address Austen’s habits as a reader and writer, recreate scenes from her novel Emma (celebrating its 200th birthday in 2016), and invite visitors to read works by Austen, her contemporaries, and those inspired by her writings.
