Form & Function: Objects with Flair
On display through Jul 08, 2018 at the New Mexico Farm and Ranch Heritage Museum
This fun exhibit features 44 objects from the museum’s collections that combine usefulness and beauty.
Some objects are purely utilitarian in nature, with no real aesthetic appeal. At the other end of the spectrum are objects of art, which serve no functional purpose other than to be appreciated for their beauty, or the message the artist wishes to convey. Somewhere in the middle are those things that have a definite purpose, but which also exhibit a deliberate sense of style. That’s what the objects in this exhibit have in common.
It includes everything from woven items such as Navajo rugs to Apache and Pima baskets, to vases, pots and bowls, as well as saddles, guns, and furniture.
The exhibit will be in the museum’s Traditions Gallery through July 8.
