mission

Chipstone is a non-profit organization located in Fox Point, Wisconsin. Milwaukee collectors Stanley and Polly Mariner Stone founded Chipstone with the mission to collect early American decorative arts and promote scholarship in the field. Today, the foundation's holdings of early American furniture, historical prints, British pottery and contemporary craft are creatively displayed and interpreted alongside the Milwaukee Art Museum's collection. In addition to its collaboration with the Museum, Chipstone partners with the University of Wisconsin- Madison in an effort to digitize decorative arts collections, provides video content on Artbabble, conducts think tanks devoted to new ways of interpretation, and publishes two annual scholarly journals, American Furniture and Ceramics in America.
