Friday, September 30, 2022, 3:45 pm

Reflecting on the last 50 years of her work, jeweler and advocate Kiff Slemmons examines jewelry’s place in culture—both past and present—including its capacity for meaning and metaphor, its reflection of identity, its potential to offer protection, and its release from convention. Presented in conjunction with the current installation American Jewelry: The Susan Grant Lewin Collection at the Yale University Art Gallery. Generously sponsored by the Oswaldo Rodriguez Roque Memorial Lectureship Fund.
