Framed: The Art of the Picture Frame

Thursday, July 2, 2020

The Springfield Art Museum’s permanent collection contains a wide variety of art frames, both historic and contemporary. This exhibit utilizes the collection to demonstrate frame styles and trends covering both hand-carved and mass-produced molded ornament frames, as well as to illustrate the important role of framing in conserving and preserving artwork. This exhibition was guest curated by Exhibitions Manager Cindy Quayle.
