Event Details



Art Deco to Streamline: Modern American Metalwork, 1925 - 1940


Wednesday, October 2, 2013
6:30 p.m. Reception
7:00 p.m. Lecture

In the rush toward modernity after the 1925 Paris Exposition, architectural and domestic metalwork gained prominence in the public eye, exemplifying the "art deco" mode. Using examples from Cooper-Hewitt's collection, curator and art historian Jewel Stern will examine the stylistic transition in metalwork during the late 1920s and 1930s, from the exuberance of the Jazz Age through the Depression, reflecting a new sober aesthetic associated with "streamlining" and a modern classicism.


The Morse Historic Design Lecture Series is made possible by the generous support of Mr. and Mrs. Lester S. Morse, Jr.
