We Say...

More and more museums are cobbling together shows out of their own permanent collections, rather than booking high-dollar touring exhibitions – hey, we get it; everybody’s broke these days. With this show, though, the Orlando Museum of Art takes a sidestep into other people’s storage spaces. A Passion for Collecting, opening Saturday, brings to light more than 200 objects from private Central Florida collections of decorative articles that have inspired obsession in their owners. Those with tendencies toward hoarding should probably skip this one, as the museum promises the show will “sharpen visitors’ collector’s eye,” although these precious pieces are not the stuff of an A&E TV nightmare – we’re talking about mother-of-pearl Chinese screens, gilt-filigreed Japanese porcelain, Georgian silver, antique textiles and other prized items that won’t get your house condemned. – Jessica Bryce Young
