“Urban Wear” by Kelly Malec-Kosak.

Work by Associate Professor of Fine Arts Kelly Malec-Kosak is featured in Protective Ornament: Contemporary Armor to Amulet at the National Ornamental Metal Museum.

Curated by author and Metalsmith magazine editor Suzanne Ramljack, the exhibition is made up of 80 works—including helmets, brass knuckles, breastplates, aggressive or defensive jewelry, chain mail, amulets, and talismans—all designed to address issues of protection and empowerment in the face of everyday perils and social challenges.

Malec-Kosak’s work is also featured in an accompanying book by Ramljack, On Body and Soul: Contemporary Armor to Amulets.

The exhibition is on display through Sept. 7 at the National Ornamental Metal Museum in Memphis, TN.
