Cincinnati Art Museum Behind the Scenes in Conservation: Upside down and inside out! Several wool shawls dating from the 18th and 19th centuries were being repacked for storage when this one caused some confusion: which side is the “right side” (the side that should go “out” when the shawl is worn)? The decorated paisley borders have been sewn “right sides to wrong sides” at two corners. A sloppy seamstress’ mistake? A prescient deconstructivist design choice? Not at all! This shawl is a giant square intended to be folded along the diagonal when worn: the mis-matched corners are actually a clever adjustment to allow both folded halves to be “right sides out” when in use. 3 hour ago via Facebook

On the Road to Rookwood

Maria Longworth Storer founded the Rookwood Pottery Company in 1880, not only to bring the art of pottery to Cincinnati, but also to provide a good wage to working women. We will celebrate Rookwood Pottery, recognized internationally as an example of fine art pottery, on Saturday, March 1, 2014. Anita Ellis, Deputy Director for Curatorial Affairs, Cincinnati Art Museum and Riley Humler of Humler & Nolan, 12-year Appraiser on Antiques Roadshow, will identify and describe your two Rookwood treasures.
