New York became a city known for its creativity and aspirations in the arts between the mid-1870s and the early 20th century. Visit the exhibition Gilded New York to explore how the city’s elite class expressed their status through extravagant, nature-inspired jewelry and decorative arts. Then, use gems and beads to create your own piece of wearable art inspired by the flowers, plants, and insects of the city.
