The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art has an interesting exhibit on early American silver from the Cahn collection. A companion book by Deborah Dependahl Waters was published for the exhibit.
This placement of the objects in this exhibit is interesting as they have scattered the objects in three different locations throughout the museum. I have not seen that done before and I think it was very effective in providing refreshment to my senses between stops.
The Nelson-Atkins Museum is also a delight to visit – their permanent collections are remarkable and their employees broadcast a friendly and gracious feeling well beyond anything I have ever witnessed in a museum. My granddaughter volunteers at this museum and apparently this openness and inclusiveness comes directly from the museum’s director.
As a welcome extra, modern silversmith artists Erica Voetsch and Robyn Nichols have examples of their work mixed in with the exhibit.
