My Favorite Things tours bring some of the most opinionated and fascinating artists, cultural producers and community figures into the galleries to discuss their favorite works of art.
This week SAM offers a tour of Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness: American Art from the Yale University Art Gallery with John Kettman. Employing tools and techniques of the 17th and 18th centuries, Kettman produces custom, handcrafted furniture inspired by the collections of world-famous museums and auction houses. Preserving the workmanship of hand-cut joinery, hammer veneering and the fine art of French marquetry, he produces furniture of the utmost quality and beauty.
Free with museum admission. Tours meet at the entrance to the Fourth Floor special exhibition galleries.
