Tiff Massey: Jewelry Box

February 13

Multimedia artist and metalsmith, Tiff Massey, brings Jewelry Box, a 1980’s hip-hop fashion-inspired exhibition to the Muskegon Museum of Art from November 11, 2021 through February 20, 2022.

Jewelry Box is an immersive experience where large-scale jewelry pieces, gold, and mirrors will transform the MMA’s Olthoff Gallery into a flashy display of dynamic exploration, self-identity, and fashion. Massey uses the concept of adornment as an examination of African diaspora and issues of race, class, and popular culture.

Massey was the first black woman to earn an MFA in metalsmithing from Cranbrook Academy of Art and maintains her studio practice in Detroit. Her art has been featured around the US and internationally, garnering multiple awards, such as a two-time winner of the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation’s Knight Arts Challenge and a 2015 Kresge Arts in Detroit Fellowship recipient.

The Tiff Massey: Jewelry Box Exhibition is underwritten by Fifth Third Bank.
