Overview

The Dayton Art Institute’s next centennial special exhibition, Maker & Muse: Women and Early 20th-Century Art Jewelry, will be on view through January 19, 2020. This stunning exhibition of more than 200 unique pieces of handcrafted art jewelry celebrates the role of women, both as inspiration and as designers/makers. Featuring exquisite works by renowned artists such as Louis Comfort Tiffany, Charlotte Newman, and René Lalique, Maker & Muse celebrates the impact of women and art jewelry across five regions: Great Britain, France, Austro-Germany, New York and Chicago.

Drawn from the Collection of Richard H. Driehaus, as well as from other prominent collections, Maker & Muse explores the fascinating symbiosis between art jewelry, design, and women in the early 20th century. The works in this exhibition offer a mesmerizing glimpse into the social, political, and economic realms in which they were created.

Maker & Muse was organized by The Richard H. Driehaus Museum and is toured by International Arts & Artists, Washington, D.C.
