As a result of delays caused by Hurricane Sandy, the Museum of Arts and Design will postpone the opening for its upcoming exhibition, The Art of Scent 1889-2012. Originally slated to open on Tuesday, November 13th, the exhibition will now open on Tuesday, November 20th.
The first museum exhibition to examine perfume as an art form in its own right, The Art of Scent will lead visitors through an olfactory experience that showcases the artistry inherent to creating a fragrance. In an installation designed by Diller Scofidio + Renfro, the exhibition will explore major stylistic developments in the evolution and design of fragrance and feature such works as Jicky by Aimé Guerlain, Chanel N° 5 by Ernest Beaux, and Pleasures by Annie Buzantian, among others.
