Striking Gold: Fuller at Fifty
On view through April 5, 2020
Fuller Craft Museum
In honor of its esteemed fifty-year history, Fuller Craft presents the exhibition “Striking Gold: Fuller at Fifty.” This invitational exhibition marks the institution’s “golden anniversary” by exploring the storied traditions, modern interpretations, and conceptual rigor of gold as an artistic material. Among the exhibition themes to be explored are avarice, vanity, power, consumption, ecology, divinity, cultural measures, alchemy, artifice, and transformation. Exhibited works include craft media as well as fine art mediums to reflect Fuller Craft’s dual histories as both a fine art and craft museum. Curated by Fuller Craft Chief Curator Beth McLaughlin and art historian Suzanne Ramljak.
