In this episode of Curious Objects, Michael Diaz-Griffith treks to Colonial Williamsburg in Virginia to talk with chief curator Ron Hurst about a new exhibition at the DeWitt Wallace Museum of Decorative Arts.
In an episode keyed to Art Carpenter’s Wishbone chair, scholar and curator Glenn Adamson shares his thoughts on the similarities and differences between art and design.
Listeners to this podcast will recognize the name Freeman’s—for more than a year, the Philadelphia-based auction house has been Curious Objects’ lead sponsor, and its no exaggeration to say the podcast wouldn’t exist without them.
As I write this it is early February, yet I still feel a bit of lingering zing from our participation last month in the sixty-fifth annual Winter Show, which was billed as the event’s Sapphire Jubilee edition. The Magazine ANTIQUES has had an association with the show, held at the Park Avenue Armory, almost from the beginning.
At the Winter Show’s 2019 sapphire jubilee, Curious Objects hosted a panel discussion with four young mavens of the antiques world—Michael Diaz-Griffith, associate executive director of the Winter Show; Emily Bode, designer and founder of fashion label Bode; Carleigh Queenth, vice president and specialist head of the European ceramics and glass department at Christie’s, New York; and Ben Miller—in the Park Avenue Armory’s resplendent Herter Brothers–designed Board of Officers Room.
