Jeannine Falino, Independent Curator & Museum Consultant, New York
Discover the influence of the displays at the Philadelphia Centennial Exposition of 1876 that created a heightened awareness of design and manufacturing, and influenced the shape and decoration of objects for the home, as well as costume design and jewelry. Ms. Falino will explore the social currents on both sides of the Atlantic that affected the new aesthetic jewelry of the day.
