Forging a Link: Metalsmiths Respond to the Mercer Collection

September 28, 2019 – January 5, 2020

Experience the Mercer Museum’s historic artifacts in a new light this fall in the exhibit Forging a Link: Metalsmiths Respond to the Mercer Collection.

Curated by Professor Cappy Counard of Edinboro University, this exhibit highlights the work of twenty-three blacksmiths, metalsmiths and jewelers, who represent a diverse cross section of their fields. These artists responded to the museum’s historic collection with their own contemporary works of art that are integrated into the museum’s permanent exhibits and displayed alongside the artifacts that inspired them.


A beautiful 70-page catalog for the exhibit can be purchased at the Mercer Museum’s gift shop for $19.95 or by contacting us by phone or email at 215-345-0210 ext. 114 or info@mercermuseum.org.
