Delaware Art Museum ~ Materpieces in Miniature 2008 – 2009


The Delaware Art Museum has a unique show at the end of each year called MASTERPIECES IN MINIATURE. This exhibition is made possible, in part, by grants from the Delaware Division of the Arts in partnership with the National Endowment for the Arts. Miniaturists select a work of art from the museum’s galleries. They then create a miniature in a room box of that artwork. Above: miniature doll and room box created by Deborah Mackie based on the painting The Peacock Robe by George Watson Barratt.

I remember my grandmother took me to this when I was little (we live in Washington DC, so it was too close to pass up!) It was a wonderful experience to have as a young child, and something I will always treasure. I highly recommend it to anyone who appreciates miniatures or dollhouses, and I only wish I could visit now!
