You can be sure that everything glittering at the Museum of American Finance is gold!
Running from November 19th through December 30th, 2016 a new exhibit called “Worth its Weight: Gold from the Ground Up” features more than 100 gold-related items from various public and private collections (including the Tiffany & Co. Archives, designer Marla Aaron and Artist Sidney Mobell).
The exhibit is divided into rooms. The “Gold in America” room goes into depth about the history of gold and how it became a world standard. The “Jewelry Box” room focuses on the glamour and luxury associated with gold jewelry. The “Midas Touch” room features work from world-renowned jewelry artist Sidney Mobell. Just like the late King of Phrygia, Mobell has a talent for turning everyday items, such as a mailbox and Monopoly set, into pieces of pure gold art.
Be sure not to miss this golden opportunity!
