Edgar Miller Legacy, Terra Foundation, and Chicago Design Museum present “Edgar Miller, The Designer: A Pioneer of Art in Modern Design.”
This talk will feature a panel of experts on Chicago’s design and cultural history to bring to life the story of Edgar Miller, Chicago’s not-so-forgotten genius of art, design, architecture, and philosophy of everyday creativity. Miller was a self-taught artist and master craftsman—a true “Renaissance Man” of the modern era—who lent his skills to a multitude of design projects in advertising, packaging, interiors and architecture.
Please join us for this exciting, in-depth conversation. Refreshments will be provided. Free and open to the public!
