Make-Do’s: Curiously Repaired Antiques

When: June 3-Oct. 1 2017

Make-dos include everyday household remnants, such as porcelain teapots with silver replacement spouts and or tin handles. They also include treasured relics, such as a decanter riddled with staples that was once owned by Washington Irving. More than 100 examples will be drawn from local, private and public collections. At some point in their history these objects met with calamity, and yet, were deemed too precious to discard. They invite curiosity: Were they repaired for practical, sentimental, or aesthetic reasons?
