Event Description

 

Read My Pins: The Madeleine Albright Collection showcases over 200 pins which former U.S. Secretary of State Madeleine Albright famously used to make poignant diplomatic statements.

 

The works on view span more than a century of jewelry design and include fascinating pieces from across the globe selected by Albright for their symbolic, rather than material, value. The exhibition explores the stories behind these brooches as well as their historical and artistic significance, highlighting jewelry's ability to communicate in a nonverbal yet powerfully articulate way.
