Chess exhibition at local museum

From the Easton Journal:
Pelican bishops, two-faced queens, bean bag knights and oil can kings are just some of the chess pieces created by ninety international metalsmiths for "Chess," on exhibit at Fuller Craft Museum [in Brockton, MA] through June 5.... Metalsmiths from all over the world were invited to contribute individual chess pieces for the exhibition. The only requirements were that pieces had to be recognizable (e.g., as king, queen, pawn, etc) and meet height restrictions (4-10.5cm).... Several of the artists in "Chess" are master metalsmiths, well know for their magnificent creations in miniature.
