Title: The Museum of Arts and Design presents
Sub Title: The Fisher Dollhouse: A Venetian Palazzo in Miniature
Date: May 20, 2021 - September 26, 2021
Time: Varies   
Location: Museum of Arts and Design
Street Address: 2 Columbus Circle
  New York City, NY 10019
Description: the Fisher Dollhouse was created within the confines of the COVID-19 pandemic. Inspired by Venice’s glamourous Gritti Palace and memories of a world once on the move, the dollhouse provided a haven for its creator and, during the months of quarantine, an escape. Like other crafts, its making offered a form of therapy: an activity to occupy the mind and hands as a means of coping with anxiety and immobility.

Joanna Fisher is a New York-based arts patron and collector. When the city went into lockdown, she felt her world shrink…and embraced it, literally. For this project, Fisher enlisted the talents of dozens of celebrated crafts persons, designers, artisans, and artists. The house itself was made to order by British set designer Holly Jo Beck. The stunning Murano-style glass chandelier came from glass artists Mario Ramos and Mariana Grande in Madrid. A painted bombe chest and bust of Julius Caesar are by David Castillo, a miniaturist in Barcelona. Fred Cobbs, a revered miniature metalworker in Georgia, made a range of tools and other items, from a watering can to a wine vat to an espresso machine. Most extraordinary are the miniature works of contemporary art created by ten prominent international artists, among them Dustin Yellin, Ryan McGinness, Hunt Slomen, and Veronica Gaido.

The Fisher Dollhouse installation also includes exquisite replicas of a jousting tent, a festival tent, a dovecote, and grotto tent containing micro-artworks and other whimsical details that reward close looking. A project begun in isolation that expanded Joanna Fisher’s world far beyond her apartment walls, the Fisher Dollhouse will now be open for all to inhabit and enjoy.

This stunning installation is available through September 26, 2021.

Entry to The Fisher Dollhouse is free with your Museum admission ticket. All visitors and members must reserve a separate, free timed ticket to view the installation.
