‘Sculptural Dinnerware’ on display at Michigan Medicine

June 9, 2020  //  FOUND IN: Updates & Resources

To help alleviate stress and provide respite at the academic medical center, Gifts of Art offers a number of art exhibitions across the organization.

One of those exhibitions is presented by the International Museum of Dinnerware Design. Sculptural Dinnerware features a selection of artwork from the museum’s permanent collection.

This exhibition features sculptural artwork that will make the viewer stop and look, including an abstract knife, fork and spoon set created from clay; European wire scribble sculpture; beautiful pouring vessels created by noted designer Russel Wright; and “Frog Fruit Loops” by California Funk artist David Gilhooly.

Visitors can see porcelain plates with Mozart’s “Magic Flute;” green frogs in faux cereal; an Art Deco car-shaped teapot from the 1930s; and Mid-Century Modern luncheon snack sets.

Check out the work for yourself!

Where: Gifts of Art Gallery – Taubman Health Center South Lobby, Floor 1.

When: 8 a.m. – 8 p.m. daily through Aug. 28
