Concord Museum Exhibits Work From North Bennet Street School Alumni

In a historic collaboration, the Concord Museum and the North End's North Bennet Street School are celebrating the renowned school's 125th anniversary with a juried exhibition of the work of fifty-nine distinguished alumni from ten states across the country. Included in the special exhibition are over sixty examples of furniture, jewelry, musical instruments and bookbindings, as well as illustrations of the work of the preservation carpentry, carpentry and locksmithing programs.

North Bennet Street School President, Miguel Gómez-Ibáñez, also an alumnus of the school, said of the collaboration, “We are very pleased to be partnering with the Concord Museum for this exhibition, which will be the opening event and the most public celebration of our 125th anniversary. Some of the objects on view draw their inspiration from craft techniques of the past; others bring a fresh look to classic pieces using today’s innovative technology.  “The Concord Museum has a deep respect for the work of the North Bennet Street School, their students and alumni,” said Désirée Caldwell, Executive Director of the Concord Museum. “This special exhibition creates an exciting visual dialogue between craft traditions of the past and present. Working with contemporary craftspeople brings a welcome new perspective to the historical pieces in our collection and others.”

A Dedication to Craft is on view at the Concord Museum through March 21, 2010 from 11 a.m.-4 p.m. $10, $8 seniors and students, $5 ages 6-18. Concord Museum, Cambridge Turnpike at Lexington Road, Concord. 978-369-9763. More information at www.concordmuseum.org.
