Midcentury Musings: Design for a New Way of Living
May 9, 2019 - Aug 11, 2019
Midcentury Musings: Design for a New Way of Living highlights how post-WWII designers were exploring and creating new ways of living. Inspired by the excitement of a booming economy, population, and scientific innovations, designers stretched the imagination of how we interact with and define our living spaces.
This exhibition is inspired by the Denver Art Museum's summer beacon exhibition, Serious Play: Design in Midcentury America, which explores how play was a catalyst for creativity and innovation in post-war design. In collaboration, CU Denver students and professors created educational interpretations on view here and at the Denver Art Museum.
