From gleaming silverware on an elegantly set table to a shining trophy held high above the winner’s head, silver speaks volumes about American style, values, innovation and industry, and continues to do so today. Join us as Elizabeth A. Williams, Curator of Decorative Arts and Design at the Museum of Art Rhode Island School of Design, provides the perfect prelude to the Art Museum’s forthcoming exhibition Cincinnati Silver: 1788-1940 (opening June 14), by examining the evolution of form and design in works of American silver from the 19th century to the present.
