Join us for a discussion on “Tiny Treasures: The Magic of Miniatures,” an exhibition that explores miniaturization in art and how artists and artisans play with our perception of scale. The more than 100 objects on view span a range of sizes, from just a few centimeters to over two feet, and include amulets from ancient Egypt, sculpted ivory and wood netsuke from Edo Japan, and jewelry depicting miniaturized everyday items.
Hear from Courtney Harris, Assistant Curator, Decorative Arts and Sculpture, Art of Europe, and Luisa Respondek, Exhibition Designer, as they take us behind the scenes of this exciting exhibition and show miniatures to be far more compelling than their size would suggest.
