Mid-Century @ Smart Museum of Art Between 1850 and 1950, progressive artists, designers, and architects decisively reshaped the everyday world of objects. Advocating for design reform — and by extension, social reform — they promoted a host of competing ideologies that embraced aesthetic revolution and technical innovation. Drawn entirely from the Smart Museum's collection, this exhibition explores the interweaving history and iconic forms that defined the domestic world of modernism. The exhibition features both one-of-a-kind commissions as well as mass-produced objects, including designs by Frank Lloyd Wright, Mies van der Rohe, Marcel Breuer, Charles and Ray Eames, and many others.
