Pearl Works at the Musical Instrument Museum
Starting this November, the Musical Instrument Museum (MIM), in partnership with Pearl Works, will showcase the art and craft of inlay with a new exhibition, Dragons and Vines: Inlaid Guitar Masterpieces. The exhibition will feature more than thirty exquisitely inlaid instruments, the majority from the private collection of Pearl Works’ founder, Larry Sifel.
Pearl Works is thrilled to be part of this historic exhibition at MIM, where the artistry of inlay will be celebrated on a global scale. “Having Larry’s personal collection on exhibit at the Musical Instrument Museum is an incredible tribute to the work that he began, and the work we continue to do at Pearl Works,” said Bill Seymour, Pearl Works’ president.
The exhibition will be on display in MIM’s Target Gallery from November 5, 2016, through September 4, 2017. Similar to other displays in MIM’s permanent galleries, Dragons and Vines: Inlaid Guitar Masterpieces will include high-quality audio and video content, including interviews with Pearl Works staff. The museum will also feature artist talks and concerts throughout the exhibition’s run.
