      Furniture as Art
    • Wednesday, March 1, 2017
    • The Trenton City Museum hosts "Furniture as Art," four exhibits in one that highlight the items that bring comfort and beauty to our lives: furniture. How many of us take our daily surroundings for granted? This exhibit helps us to see the everyday with fresh eyes. On the second floor, "Furniture from the Permanent Collection" features furniture from the collection of the Trenton Museum Society - antique furniture made in and associated with Trenton. "Rustic Regional Windsor Chairs" includes a collection of early Windsor chairs loaned by private collectors. The first floor galleries feature "Please Be Seated," displaying the work of contemporary area furniture designers and the diversity of styles and materials they use. In addition, there's "On These Walls," a display of contemporary painting, highlighting interiors and the role furniture plays in our lives and homes.
