A new exhibit is now on display at the Museum! Guests can see some of the best pieces the Museum has purchased or been gifted over the last year. On display in the Showcase are objects from North, Central, and South America, as well as items from Asia, Africa, and the Pacific Islands. Also included are prehistoric artifacts and contemporary art objects, all of which are testament to the Museum’s broad collecting focus.
Enameled Asian Works
Closing Date TBD
Enamel is a type of treated glass, formed by melting ground sand, soda, and coloring agents. Until recently, it was primarily used for decoration. Enamel can be used as a filler material or diluted and applied as paint. Once fired, enamels attain a gloss and brightness that is generally unobtainable by mineral-based paints. Furthermore, unlike paint, enamel does not fade or darken over time.
