Guided Tour of “Jewelry Stories” Exhibition
Thu / Feb 2 / 1:00 pm / Museum of Arts and Design, 2 Columbus Circle
The Museum of Arts and Design’s 1956 inaugural exhibition, Craftsmanship in a Changing World, gave many Americans their first exposure to metalsmiths who were challenging the norms of conventional jewelry design and creating works rooted in sculptural experimentation. Take a tour of the latest exhibition, featuring pieces from their extensive collection, highlighting MAD's contributions to the field of jewelry as artistic expression that ultimately broadened the scope and reach of art as a wearable medium. Unlike costume and precious jewelry, it is the concept that takes center stage in these works.
Registration limited to one person per registration. Open to Women's Network members.
