Gorham Silver: Designing Brilliance, 1850–1970

This dazzling presentation of exceptional silver and mixed-metal wares casts new light on the legacy of Gorham and reflects the industry, artistry, innovation, and technology of the manufactory for 120 years. Adeptly coupling art and industry, Gorham boldly rose from a small firm, established in 1831 in Providence, Rhode Island, to become the largest silver company in the world, placing uniquely American design on the international stage. Creating everything from commissioned presentation pieces to show-stoppers for the dining room, Gorham responded to the era’s desire to celebrate, feast, socialize, honor, and simply enjoy the everyday in style. This exhibition is joint-ticketed. Come for Gorham Silver: Designing Brilliance, 1850–1970 and stay for Something Over Something Else: Romare Bearden’s Profile Series (on view February 28, 2020 - May 24, 2020).
