During the pandemic, most of us are spending more time at home. Collected objects of art and design may provide a comforting reminder of a missed friend or travels. In this spirit of public engagement, J. Franks created the Zoom series: “Collectors at Home”.
For this series, the CCDA is encouraging member entries of contemporary to historic works of decorative art and design, which will be selected for an educational style format. As Curator, Franks will assist in the identification and narration of objects submitted, along with their owners, who will share their object stories. Some of these entries, with permission, will be featured in CCDA media, including its award-winning magazine.
