This new exhibition highlights 18th- and 19th-century Asian decorative arts and their imitations, drawn from the museum’s rich collection. The exhibition explores how Western craftsmen adapted Asian decorative arts into a design vocabulary more familiar to them and their customers, and highlights New Englanders’ own quest for these imported goods.
Join us at the History Workshop and “dig in” to some fascinating activities as you explore the rich heritage of agriculture in Deerfield. Learn about and use real farm tools of the past, take a peat pot of seeds home with you, and on special days, meet some gentle farm animals.
This lecture series explores the global encounters that launched a world economy, fueled a consumer revolution, and spurred dreams of cosmopolitanism among Westerners captivated by an imagined Asian aesthetic.
Historic Deerfield offers free admission thanks to the Highland Street Foundation!
