Registration

The Exhibit, ongoing since Nov 2017, has been extended to April 29. Fruitlands' winter hours (until March 25) are Sat and Sun only, 12-5.

This exhibition features newly-created, original pieces of wooden furniture made by thirteen select faculty and alumni from North Bennett Street School, alongside historic pieces of furniture from the Trustees of Reservations' collections.

Each participant worked closely with Christie, the Curator, to select a piece of historical furniture to respond to, and "answer" in a range of ways—not with copies or reproductions, but with a freshly-inspired, custom work. In some cases, the new pieces are a contemporary companion to an 18th or 19th-century object, such as a chair for a desk, Queen Anne table, or Moorish table set. Each pair of objects—old and new—is displayed together.
