Art of Tablesettings

October 4 through November 8, 2020

This annual favorite exhibit began in 1974, when Mrs. Ruth West organized an exhibit of tables inspired by works of art. The Rahr-West Art Museum is proud to keep this exhibit alive by inviting members of the public to create unique tablescapes inspired by works of art.

Each year brings new and intriguing designs and we hope that you too will come and enjoy in this annual favorite.
