Matthew Hollern Curates "Digital Mettle" Show in Memphis

Professor Matthew Hollern curates an exhibition featuring jewelers and metalsmiths who work with computer-aided design.

Matthew Hollern Curates

For centuries, jewelers have hunched over their workbenches as they carefully crafted their masterpieces. Now, in the digital age, artists have introduced computer-assisted technologies to their toolboxes. An exhibition of these stunning pieces is now on view at the National Ornamental Metal Museum in Memphis, TN.

Digital Mettle: Jewelry and Objects of CAD is curated by Matthew Hollern, professor of jewelry and metals at the Cleveland Institute of Art. There, Hollern’s introduction of computer-aided design (CAD) tools into the curriculum has built a bridge between CIA’s heritage of studio excellence and the college’s path into the 21st century. In addition to mastering traditional jewelry and metalsmithing techniques, CIA students now learn how to “print” their digital designs into three dimensions using rapid prototyping equipment rarely found in the nation’s art schools. The Memphis exhibition curated by Hollern reflects his expertise in the craft’s newest frontier.

To see the exhibition that a writer at GoMemphis.com describes as “one of the best presented that I have seen at the Metal Museum,” visit the National Ornamental Metal Museum, 374 Metal Museum Drive in Memphis, through Sept. 11, 2011. Details at metalmuseum.org.
