From a stained glass, peacock-feather Tiffany lampshade to fine art by the likes of Arthur Wesley Dow portraying life at the turn of the 20th century to intricately carved furniture, the museum showcases the movement's most iconic works. Most of the collection’s more than 2,000 pieces are on loan from the Two Red Roses Foundation, though there are plenty of visiting exhibits planned. Objets d'art you can expect to see include one-of-a-kind pottery, wood-block prints, metal work, furniture, jewelry and decorative tiles. Handmade and often intricate, they’re bold, impeccably preserved pieces whose influence you can see in even the most modern jewelry, décor and architecture.
