Columbus Museum presents Things Still Treasured: Traditional Decorative Forms in the Permanent Collection

Columbus Museum presents Things Still Treasured: Traditional Decorative Forms in the Permanent Collection, an exhibition on view through January 6, 2013.

The Columbus Museum’s American art and regional history collections include thousands of historical artifacts as well as decorative arts, folk art, textiles, paintings, sculpture, and works on paper. The fascinating objects selected for this installation include Tiffany art glass, parasols and embroidered items from the costume collection, historical silhouettes and contemporary cut paper works, portrait miniatures, a plaster relief portrait, Wedgwood cameos, a bracelet and wreath made out of hair, and a clock with a case resembling a Gothic Cathedral. These objects showcase the traditional decorative arts and design that have inspired the artists in Past is Present, an exhibition in the Third Floor Galleries that runs concurrently with this installation. www.columbusmuseum.com
