Opening Reception: TBD
In honor of its esteemed fifty-year history, Fuller Craft Museum presents the exhibition Striking Gold. This invitational exhibition marks the institution’s “golden anniversary” as it probes the storied history of gold as an artistic material as well as its cultural, historical, and political associations. The inclusion of gold in the selected works reveals clear intention and purpose, rather than being used for purely decorative effect. In each case gold serves as the subject, as well as a material property of the work.
The exhibition is co-curated by Suzanne Ramljak, an art historian, writer, curator, and former editor of Metalsmith magazine, and Beth McLaughlin, Fuller Craft’s Chief Curator of Exhibitions and Collections.
