      Explore how weddings inspire creativity in cultures around the world.

      Featuring approximately 130 objects, this ambitious exhibition presents work by artists such as Pablo Picasso, Marc Chagall, Claes Oldenburg and Jacob Lawrence alongside historic and couture gowns, ceremonial items and rare jewelry. The complex beliefs and emotions surrounding the matrimonial experience are reflected in three centuries of art and culture from the United States, Asia, Africa and Europe. The full spectrum of the matrimonial experience — from courtship, engagement, and pre-nuptial arrangements to wedding rituals, ceremonies, and anniversaries — is richly represented.

      Supported in part by the Henry Luce Foundation, the Coby Foundation and New Trade Winds/ECHO.
