Fabergé: From Imperial Culture to Pop Culture

Friday, October 12, 6 p.m.
Saturday, October 13, 1 p.m.

Yao-Fen You
Assistant Curator of European Sculpture and Decorative Arts, Detroit Institute of Arts

The name Fabergé has many connotations: imperial jeweler to the doomed Russian royal family; dime-store deodorants and cheap aftershave; fabulous one-of-a-kind bejeweled eggs. Curator You invites you to explore Fabergé's legacy. Held in Detroit Film Theater Auditorium
