Sienna Patti Contemporary is pleased to announce a recent museum acquisition by the Museum of Fine Arts Boston. The 2019 piece, Charmed, was acquired for the permanent collection.
‘The tour-de-force bracelet, Charmed, featuring the work of more than 70 artists, some who are now represented in the collection for the first time, will be contextualized alongside other charms and charm bracelets, as well as other examples of jewelry created to mark a special occasion. Many jewels function as tokens of remembrance, and this ornament created to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Sienna Patti’s eponymous gallery, will live on in the museum collection where scholars, makers, and students can study it for generations to come. This is an incredibly exciting acquisition for the museum! ‘
