Boston Made: Arts and Crafts Jewelry and Metalwork
April 3 @ 5:00pm, 5:45pm, and 6:30pm - Your choice of three sessions!
465 Huntington Ave. Boston, MA 02115
MFA Design Curator Meghan Melvin takes you behind-the-scenes look at the artists’ archives that inspired the current exhibition “Boston Made: Arts and Crafts Jewelry and Metalwork” and the related publication Boston Arts and Crafts Jewelry: Frank Gardner Hale and his Circle. A rare opportunity to see original designs and working drawings for jewelry and silver by Frank Gardner Hale, Arthur Stone and Edward Oakes, some of the leading Arts and Crafts artisans in the early 20th century.
Space is limited for each session. Please note there are three sessions to choose from!
The MFA is free and open to the public on Wednesday evenings.
The MFA’s collection of prints and drawings is among the richest in the world, containing almost 200,000 works that range from the beginnings of printing in the 15th century to today. The collection has many strengths—from Dürer and Rembrandt to Goya and John Singer Sargent—but it boasts unexpected areas of depth as well, including a rapidly expanding design collection. Space is limited, so sign up for one of the three viewing sessions soon!
