Into the Woods: Crafting Early American Furniture (2017)

Open weekends through April 9.
Explore a dazzling array of masterworks by famous American cabinetmakers including Duncan Phyfe and Honoré Lannuier, Samuel McIntire, John and Thomas Seymour, and John Townsend. Learn about antique furniture from the inside out, and gain a new understanding of the materials and craftsmanship that went into the creation of these spectacular objects through graphics, before-and-after views of conservation treatments, and innovative “exploded view” display techniques. Into the Woods also features a special changing section, which will feature the study of different elements. Included with general admission.
Into the Woods was made possible by a grant from The Americana Foundation.
