Margo Grant Walsh was on site earlier this week for the installation of an exhibition drawn from her 20th century silver and metal collection.  With a passion for silver, Grant Walsh, a retired interior designer, has amassed one of the most important privately held collections.  Her guiding principle for acquisitions has been first and foremost design, craftsmanship, and functionality.   The exhibition opens to the public on July 23.  Grant Walsh will return to Laramie to present a talk on her collection on Thurs., Sept. 8 (7 pm) and a Gallery Walk Through on Fri., Sept. 9 (4:30 pm).
