Wedded Bliss, The Marriage of Art and Ceremony

The Peobody Essex Museum of Massachusetts explores weddings as a source of art and inspiration from cultures around the world. Wedded Bliss features approximately 130 objects. With works that include artists Jacob Lawrence, Pablo Picasso, Marc Chagall along side couture gowns, rare jewelry, and ceremonial items. The ceremony of marriage is a complicated one, hence the success of reality shows like Bridezilla, Platinum Weddings and many others. It is curious how many customs and traditions are still practiced. The exhibit will explore the full matrimonial experience from the Africa, Asia, Europe, and the United States. I do hope to see this exhibit myself and I am sure many of you will enjoy it too.
Wedded Bliss runs now through to September 14, 2008.
