New Mid-Century Modernism Exhibition in San Francisco


Designing Home: Jews and Midcentury Modernism just opened at San Francisco’s Contemporary Jewish Museum.  Organized in collaboration with guest curator Donald Albrecht, the exhibit explores the design and architectural contributions that Jewish émigrés made in in post-WWII America.

The exhibit includes art, architecture, and everyday objects that have become an integrated part of American homes.  Included in the display is an advertisement for an Eichler home, paying homage to the fact that Joseph Eichler, in addition to being at the forefront of Modernism in America, was known for his progressive views on nondiscrimination.  Other work on display at this celebration of Mid-Century Modern sensibilities is work by Alvin Lustig, Ruth Adler Schnee, and Henry Dreyfuss whose designs include the iconic Princess Phone and the Honeywell Round Thermostat.

Designing Home: Jews and Midcentury Modernism will run at the Contemporary Jewish Museum in San Francisco through October 6, 2014.
