Getting Ready for Opening Day: "The Artistic Furniture of Charles Rohlfs"
A traveling exhibition is a carefully choreographed production, involving dozens of people who are responsible for countless logistical and technical details. Curators, designers, registrars, exhibition preparators, art handlers, mount makers, and others put in many hours of intense effort. “The Artistic Furniture of Charles Rohlfs,” which opens at The Huntington on May 22, 2010, is just such an exhibition. These photos provide a brief snapshot of some of the activity that went on in The Huntington’s Boone Gallery as the art objects were being unpacked and installed in readiness for opening day.

Organized by the Milwaukee Art Museum, the Chipstone Foundation, and the American Decorative Art 1900 Foundation, this is the first major exhibition of the work of Charles Rohlfs, who is considered one of the mavericks of the Arts and Crafts movement. The exhibition premiered in Milwaukee and has traveled to Dallas and Pittsburgh. It will complete its nation tour at the Metropolitan Museum in New York this fall.
