On View: “Out of This World! Jewelry in the Space Age”, Forbes Galleries (NYC)

From the Forbes Jewelry Gallery:

Depictions of bodies in outer space have appeared in jewelry since ancient times. The influence of the space race beginning in the late 1950s had a major impact on jewelry design and continues to do so today. This exhibition will trace space images in jewelry from the Georgian period through today and will include fine and costume jewelry from the 1960s through the present, jewelry being made by contemporary studio artists influenced by space, jewelry made from materials created by NASA for space exploration, jewelry with materials that came from space and jewelry flown in space by astronauts and more. A great exhibition to bring the whole family.
Curated by Elyse Zorn Karlin, Co-Director of the Association for the Study of Jewelry & Related Arts.
Admission to this exhibition is free of charge. Check here for gallery hours and directions.
