    Fantasia Reimagined: Don Joint & Evergreen's Meissen Garden
    May 11, 2019September 8, 2019
    Location: Evergreen Museum & Library Price: Free with regular admission; $3 for exhibition only

    Evergreen Museum & Library is open Tuesday-Friday, 11 a.m.-4 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday, noon-4 p.m. Closed Mondays. For group tours or more information, contact the museum at 410-516-0341. 

    Artist Don Joint celebrates the many figurines of German porcelain collected by two generations of Evergreen’s Garrett family in this special exhibition that juxtaposes objects from the museum’s collection with his own large-scale glass mosaic. The intricate patterns of Joint's mosaics both echo and diverge from the sprightly eighteenth- and nineteenth-century figurines produced by the Meissen company, prompting visitors to reconsider these objects that are so often dismissed as kitsch.
