Long Description:
The Metal Museum is dedicated to the preservation and advancement of the art and craft of fine metalwork. All aspects of metals from ecclesiastic or ritual objects to architectural and public art pieces are embraced. The Museum believes that all decorative metals should enhance or improve our living environment. Those efforts are achieved through exhibitions, conservation, restoration and consulting services, classes, internship opportunities and research. The Museum serves the nationwide community of metalsmiths and, because of its location, the Greater Memphis Community.
