Created by Wisconsin artist Martha Glowacki and curators at the Chipstone Foundation, this imaginative installation combines historic objects with original artworks in ways that delight our eyes, awaken our minds, and stimulate our emotions.</p> American Art British Art cabinet of curiosities Ceramics Decorative Arts Martha Glowacki Milwaukee Art Museum science European Art Chipstone ea222d330ff1872e Thu, 14 Jan 2010 15:09:49 +0000 claudia_arzeno 6141 at
