Join us for an opening reception, exhibition viewing, and book signing with collector Susan Grant Lewin and contemporary jewelry scholar Ursula Ilse Neuman, who will discuss works on view in "Jewelry of Ideas: Gifts from the Susan Grant Lewin Collection."

Celebrating a major gift of contemporary jewelry from Susan Grant Lewin to Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum, the exhibition features nearly 150 objects by over 100 modern and contemporary jewelry designers and makers from eighteen countries, from the late 1940s to the present. Lewin, a preeminent collector in the field, has acquired many significant and unique pieces during forty-plus years of collecting. These works were chosen as superb examples of the creators’ explorations of ornament and idea, social commentary and communication, and for their innovative use of materials, approaches to design process, and technique.
