"American Modern, 1925-1940: Design for a New Age"
2000-05-16 until 2001-01-07
Metropolitan Museum of Art
New York, NY, USA United States of America

Between 1925 and 1940, a pioneer group of industrial designers emerged in this country who decisively altered the shape and character of the everyday things with which we live. They created objects that reflected the dynamism of the 20th century, trying their hand at everything from streamlined locomotives and SKYSCRAPER furniture to cocktail shakers and kitchen appliances.

On display are approximately 150 objects—furniture, clocks, appliances, lamps, textiles, posters, and more from the Museum's collection and the John C. Waddell Collection, a major promised gift to the Metropolitan—created by the first generation of American industrial designers including Norman Bel Geddes, Donald Deskey, Henry Dreyfuss, Paul Frankl, Raymond Loewy, Eliel Saarinen, Walter Dorwin Teague, Walter von Nessen, Russel Wright, and others.

The exhibition was organized by The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the American Federation of Arts. Support has been provided by the William Randolph Hearst Foundation and the National Patrons of the AFA.
