In the Exhibition Gallery & The Mansion
June 3- October 1, 2017

 

Boscobel House and Gardens presents Make-Do’s: Curiously Repaired Antiques, the first exhibition of its kind to celebrate objects that were damaged, but deemed too precious to discard. From porcelain teapots with silver replacement spouts to a repaired tea table purportedly used by George Washington at his Newburgh, New York headquarters, Make-Do’s features 250 curious treasures.

 

Boscobel itself is a kind of make-do. The original 1804-08 Neoclassical mansion was partially demolished in 1955, but—thanks to dedicated preservationists—reassembled and repurposed as a museum. Like Boscobel and its permanent collection, Make-Do’s illustrates the complex relationships between people and the things they choose to save.

 

Make-Do’s: Curiously Repaired Antiques will be open during regular museum hours June 3 through October 1, 2017 and is included with admission to the house or grounds. An illustrated catalogue with essays by Curator Jennifer Carlquist

and collector/designer Andrew Baseman will accompany the exhibition and be available for purchase in the Gift Shop.
