Dennis Carr, Carolyn and Peter Lynch Curator of American Decorative Arts and Sculpture, Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. Beginning in the 16th century, direct trade between Europe, Asia, and the Americas spurred a remarkable interchange of artworks and artistic styles. Inspired by objects brought via the trans-Atlantic and trans-Pacific trade routes, colonial artists across the Americas—from Caracas, Venezuela, to Mexico City, to Lima, Peru—created spectacular artworks that blended Asian, indigenous, and European influences, reflecting the newly globalized world in which they were made. Offered in conjunction with the concurrent exhibition Power and Piety: Spanish Colonial Art. Sponsored by the Middlebury College Museum of Art, the Department of History of Art and Architecture, and the Friends of the Art Museum. Free
