FRIDAY: Westchester Sketchers at the Bruce Museum

December 27th
Sea serpents crushing ships. Seven-foot-tall giants. A mummified Porsche. What other oddities might you find to sketch in the Bruce Museum’s 2D curiosity cabinet? See for yourself by exploring the Bruce Museum’s new exhibition Collecting Reimagined: A 2D Curiosity Cabinet.

Curiosity cabinets are traditionally thought of as physical spaces filled with objects. However, scholars and artists in the past also used words and images to describe, and occasionally create, cabinets in two-dimensional form. In these works, the cabinet is shown on paper rather than displayed in a room.

Drawing inspiration from these cabinets on paper, this exhibition uses printed works, photographs, medals, textiles, and scrimshaw from the Bruce Museum collections to create a cabinet filled with two-dimensional depictions of typical three-dimensional cabinet objects.
