Curator talks Thorne Miniature Rooms

Art lovers won’t want to miss the Bruce Museum lecture,  “Concerning Little and a Lot: The Thorne Miniature Rooms,” to be presented by Lindsay Mican Morgan, curator of the Thorne Miniature Rooms at the Art Institute of Chicago, on Dec. 2.

The Greenwich Antiques Society will host Ms. Morgan, who will discuss one of the most beloved collections at the Art Institute of Chicago, the Thorn Miniature Rooms, conceived and designed between 1932 and 1940 by Mrs. James Ward Thorne.

People will be able to enjoy a glimpse into the history and future of the 68 Thorne Miniature Rooms, constructed on a scale of one inch to one foot by master craftsmen. Representing a visual history of European and American architecture and decorative arts from the 13th Century to the 1930’s, the rooms have a grand effect.

The event will take place Monday, Dec. 2 at 1:15 p.m. at the Bruce Museum. Refreshments will immediately follow the lecture. Admission for non-members of the Greenwich Antiques Society is $20.
