Curatorial Curiosities: Museum of Arts and Design – Crafting Modernism: Midcentury American Art and Design

There are so many amazing artists featured in this exhibition running October 11, 2011 – January 15, 2012. I loved seeing the handcrafted design that developed when most of the nation was focused on the machine age technological advances and mass production techniques. Below are a few favorites:

anni albers, sheep may safely graze

arthur smith, neckpiece

jack lenor larsen, bas relief

rude osolnik, turned bowl

stanley lechtzin, pendant 4c

ruth radakovich, cocktail ring

I’m strangely fascinated by that cocktail ring!
