Columbia Museum of Art Presents: A Reflection on American Design History
Apr 28, 2012 to Aug 26, 2012
The exhibition, The Art of Seating: 200 Years of American Design, on view beginning Saturday, April 28 through Sunday, August 26, 2012.
"This is the first comprehensive exhibition of American chair design in the history of the Museum and we are delighted to have it on view," Karen Brosius, executive director, said. "This is such a rare opportunity to see iconic American chairs in a variety of styles."
Most chairs encountered throughout the day define themselves fairly simply-a place at the family table, a comfortable spot with a great view of the river, a seat of corporate power. When looking at the 44 chairs in The Art of Seating, however, there is much more to see than simple pieces of furniture. These works of art have compelling stories to tell about our national history, the evolution of American design and incredible artistry and craftsmanship.
