Harvard Art Museums, 32 Quincy Street
Cambridge MA

This event is at capacity.

In this seminar, Ndidi Ekubia MBE, a leading contemporary silversmith in Britain, will join Ethan Lasser, the Theodore Stebbins Jr. Curator of American Art and head of the Division of European and American Art, to consider some of the most extraordinary pieces of metalwork in the Harvard Art Museums collections from a maker’s point of view. This wide-ranging conversation will open insight into the distinctive properties of silver and gold and what makes them so challenging, yet also delightful, to work with.

The seminar will take place in the Art Study Center, Level 4.
