Goldsmith ’70



The first SNAG exhibition, Goldsmith ‘70, was held in 1970 and was curated by Stanley Lechtzin and John Prip. It took place at the Minnesota Museum of Art in Minneapolis and highlighted the proficiency of an art form (jewelry and metal vessels) that more or less began after World War II and was, at that time, found to be maturing to the point of being ready for a museum exhibition. Even though the title of the exhibition included the word Goldsmith, it had very little gold.

A copy of the original Goldsmith ’70 exhibition catalog can be found here.
