Newark Museum Acquires Work by Kiff Slemmons

We are pleased to announce that Newark Museum has acquired a neckpiece by artist Kiff Slemmons. The work, titled Naccara was part of the Round-Surround series in which Slemmons explored the humble nature of the ubiquitous button.   “I wanted to take buttons out of the jars and give them new life, put them back on the body in another form.”
