Opening of the Frederick A. Miller Collection

The Cleveland Museum of Art Archives announces the opening of the Frederick A. Miller Collection, a multimedia collection documenting the life and career of the noted American silversmith.  Located in the Ingalls Library, the collection is available to the public by appointment.  Part of the collection is now on display in the library and features a bowl from the permanent collection.

An Akron native, Miller moved to Cleveland after WWII where he taught at the Cleveland Institute of Art.  He was an artisan at, and for several years owned, Potter and Mellen, one of the city’s prominent jewelry stores featuring pieces designed by many important Cleveland gold and silversmiths.  For forty years Miller created hand-wrought objects, many of which he displayed in the museum’s annual May Show.
