Toni Greenbaum. MAG to SNAG: American Studio Jewelry, 1940-1970
The development of American studio jewelry is not very well-known in Europe. Art historian Toni Greenbaum will discuss cogent issues affecting the evolution of studio jewelry in America during the mid-twentieth century. She will address the formative organizations, educational opportunities, museum exhibitions, publications, and commercial activity. As part of a broader cultural movement that grew following the end of World War Two, studio jewelry boasted numerous brilliant practitioners throughout the United States. The lecture will feature Alexander Calder, Art Smith, Sam Kramer, Margaret De Patta, Olaf Skoogfors, Stanley Lechtzin, J. Fred Woell, Ramona Solberg, and John Paul Miller, among many others.
Toni Greenbaum published benchmarks dealing with this theme and is one of the few scholars who primarily specialize in jewelry of the 20th century.
