Join World Chess Hall of Fame for a special Ladies’ Knight event featuring artist, Crystal Fischetti on Wednesday, March 9 from 6:30 P.M. – 8:00 P.M. Fischetti will be discussing her work, “The Sun and Moon”, currently on view in the Ladies’ Knight exhibition.
This chess set was created in collaboration with Purling London. The pieces are hand-carved and lacquered by Purling artisans and painted by Fischetti. In this piece, Fischetti illustrates the concepts of courtship, love and attraction through a game of chess. At the end of each game the board takes on a unique appearance based on a series of moves. It is different each time for every player.
Fischetti’s work is represented in private collections in London, New York, Los Angeles, Milan, Rome, Geneva, and Shanghai, as well as in the YueHu Museum in Shanghai.
Admission for this event is free and refreshments will be provided. Reservations are recommended.
