Historically important 14th-century to late 19th-century ceramic vessels, figurative stone carvings, wooden sculpture, basketry, hand-wrought silver jewelry and antiquarian storage chests will be on display. The objects were selected from the private collection of David Baas, a Grand Haven native.
Baas’ international teaching travels generated an intimate exposure to objects of fine craftsmanship and an appetite for collecting. He sought out a variety of objects of high quality, not to be found in tourist market stalls — which provide substantial artistic information about the cultures of Africa, the Middle East and Southeast Asia.
“International Connections” was organized for the museum by guest curator Steven Rosen.
Drop in for free guided tours, led by MMA docents, from 1-3 p.m. every Thursday in September. Reservations are not required.
