In the MAD Loupe: Beau McCall

Wed, Jun 9, 2021

Join Barbara Paris Gifford and artist Beau McCall, as the pair talk about jewelry, fashion, and contemporary art, all made with buttons! Inspired by his mother's button collection, McCall uses materials such as wood, mother of pearl, and most importantly decorative buttons for his whimsical designs that explore the history themes from pop culture to social justice. Hear from the artist about his fascinating practice and ask all your questions during the interactive q and a.
