Art

Toolin' Through Art


Thursday February 14, 2019
2:00 PM
Many masterpieces of world art contain depictions of hand tools and everyday household artifacts. “Toolin' Through Art” explores images of a number of famous artworks, focusing in on tools and objects that seem strange to us, but which were common and ubiquitous when the artworks were completed. Pictures of objects from the Museum’s collection are juxtaposed with the art slides to show the similarities. Background on the artists, the art and the artifacts is included.

About our presenters: Located in downtown Madison, NJ, The Museum of Early Trades & Crafts explores American history with a focus on the life and stories of 18th- and 19th- century craftsmen and artisans. Drawing on its rich collection, METC is connecting the lives of people and their stories, while providing a bridge from the past to the future. For information about METC, please call
973-377-2982 or visit our website at www.metc.org.

Generously sponsored by the National Society of Arts & Letters.
