Objects as Identity
October 4, 2013 - January 5, 2014
Curated by Adjunct Curator of Decorative Arts Patricia Kidd | Founders Gallery

Everything from rare maps, to an extraordinary painting or two, a Rococo mirror, a mask by Richard Hunt and a giant mosquito from Zimbabwe - all of these share one principal characteristic: they speak volumes about their past, and that of their present owners.
