COMP - $8*
$8 - $16
The Museum of American Finance's latest exhibit, Worth Its Weight captivates visitors with the many spectacular and unexpected ways gold has influenced our lives. From the earliest civilizations to the present day, humans have used gold as a symbol of opulence and wealth as well as a currency. It's played a part in entertainment and pop culture from Greek myth to modern hip-hop music, and along the way, science and technology have revealed practical uses for this precious metal. Worth Its Weight features hundreds of unique and rare objects from ancient coins to modern bling, pulled from from more than 40 public and private collections including historic objects from the Smithsonian Institution, vintage jewelry from the Tiffany & Co. Archives and decorative objects from the Degussa Collection. The exhibit includes jewelry designer Marla Aaron's coveted golden locks, and features the work of world-renowned jewelry artist Sidney Mobell, who transforms everyday items like cell phones, mailboxes and even a Monopoly game into dazzling gold and jeweled artworks.
