Featured Event

Carnival & Cabaret Museum Exhibit

Museum

It’s party time at the Wiener Museum of Decorative Arts as we celebrate the art of having fun at our latest exhibition Carnival & Cabaret. With Carnival approaching, we are exploring the flamboyant festivals in Venice, Rio and New Orleans as seen by porcelain artists from Europe. The centerpiece of our new exhibit is Carnival in Venice, a monumental masterpiece full of masked revelers in porcelain by Lladró of Spain. Discover how Harlequin and Columbine and other characters from the Italian Commedia dell’Arte have influenced carnival fun, the art of clowning and masquerade balls through the ages. Masking was particularly popular during the roaring 1920s to disguise the flirtatious behavior of the flappers. Cabaret and variety shows in early 20th century Paris and Berlin also reveled in the theatrical excesses of carnival costumes. Tripadvisor Certificate of Excellence Recipient for 2017 for our constant 5 star reviews.

Other Upcoming Events

Chihuly - The Macchia - A Study in Spontaneity

Museum

Dale Chihuly is the world’s foremost glass artist and this exhibition of his Macchia series celebrates his remarkable powers of innovation and imagination. In Italian ‘macchia’ has come to suggest the spontaneous outpouring of artistic sensibility and by choosing the title Macchia for his works, Chihuly pays tribute to the Italian glass blowers on the island of Murano near Venice. He has adapted the Venetian practice of blowing bubbles of molten glass into metal molds for his own dynamic purposes and then spinning the vessel open in the final moments of forming to awesome proportions. In these works, Chihuly encapsulates the traditional meanings of macchia: spontaneity, the close association between the artist and nature, and artistic collaboration with technique rather than control of it. Chihuly often refers to the mystery and magic of glass. The transformation of sand and a few other elements into glass seems truly magical.
