Forging a Link: Metalsmiths Respond to the Mercer Collection

Come and experience a new exhibition of contemporary metalwork displayed alongside the intriguing collection of pre-industrial tools and artifacts that inspired it. Forging a Link: Metalsmiths Respond to the Mercer Collection will be on view at the Mercer Museum in Doylestown, PA September 28, 2019 through January 5, 2020.

The Mercer Museum, built by Henry Mercer, is filled with his collection of more than 50,000 tools and objects documenting everyday life before the industrial revolution. The museum, in collaboration with guest curator Cappy Counard, invited twenty-three blacksmiths, metalsmiths, and jewelers to create a piece of artwork directly influenced by their experience with Mercer’s collection and architecture.

The Mercer Museum will host a range of community programs inspired by the new exhibit including artist lectures, curator talks and more. For more information about hours and admissions please visit mercermuseum.org.
