Of Teacups and Tankards: Reinstalling the Clark’s Decorative Arts Collections

Kathleen Morris, Sylvia and Leonard Marx Director of Collections and Exhibitions, Curator of Decorative Arts

In summer 2014 the Clark’s original museum building reopened with renovated and reinstalled displays of European art, including porcelain and silver. In early 2016 a new suite of American decorative arts galleries are scheduled to open, bringing together silver, glass, furniture, export porcelain, and period paintings. Decorative arts curator Kathleen Morris will provide an overview of the Clark’s collections, with an emphasis on the new installations of decorative arts.
