Harry Bertoia’s jewelry is on display inside the exhibition Bent, Cast & Forged organized by New York’s MAD – Museum of Design. The famous sculptor and designer used jewelry to explore his investigations of form and material during his early days at the Cranbrook Academy of Art. The exhibition comprises jewelry works and monotype prints, and offers an early glimpse of a creative vision that would crystallize as his career matured. Bent, Cast & Forged: The Jewelry of Harry Bertoia was organized by the Cranbrook Art Museum in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan, and curated by Shelley Selim, Jeanne and Ralph Graham Assistant Curator. It was secured for the Museum of Arts and Design by William and Mildred Lasdon Chief Curator Shannon R. Stratton with the support of Curatorial Assistant and Project Manager Sophia Merkin.
