Knights! is a major arms and armor exhibition, and will mark the first step in the long-term integration of the Higgins Armory Museum collection of objects from medieval and renaissance Europe, Africa, the Middle East, India, Japan, Ancient Greece, and Ancient Rome.
The opening night gala event will feature an evening of medieval revelry to celebrate the opening of the exhibition with live performances, music, and theatrics. In addition, selected objects will be displayed within the context of other art and artifacts from WAM’s permanent collection, and showcase their unique historic and aesthetic value. The five separate sections of the exhibition (Courtly Pursuits, The Dance of Love and War, Knights of the Round Table, The Arc de Triomphe, and Good + Evil) will also illustrate the context in which these works were made and used. Exhibition Party Opening Hours: 7-8pm, Members Only
8-11pm, General Public
