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

 
Make-dos include everyday household remnants, such as porcelain teapots with silver replacement spouts and or tin handles. They also include treasured relics, such as a decanter riddled with staples that was once owned by Washington Irving. More than 100 examples will be drawn from local, private and public collections. At some point in their history these objects met with calamity, and yet, were deemed too precious to discard. They invite curiosity: Were they repaired for practical, sentimental, or aesthetic reasons?

 

Boscobel is the ideal organizer of Make-Do’s, as 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, make-do’s illustrate the complex relationships between everyday people and the things that 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.
