Midcentury design shows no signs of slowing in popularity. Explore the impact of women on the movement at National Museum of Women in the Arts' latest exhibit, Pathmakers: Women in Art, Craft, and Design, Midcentury and Today.
"For these mid-20th-century women, architecture and industrial design were essentially closed male societies. So they had to create their own professional pathways through ceramics, textiles and metals," said NMWA Director Susan Fisher Sterling. “The exhibition also highlights contemporary artists influenced by these taste-makers—women who are working today in the interstices between the useful object and conceptual aesthetics."
The exhibit features work from 40 artists including Ruth Asawa, Edith Heath, Sheila Hicks, Karen Karnes, Dorothy Liebes, Alice Kagawa Parrott, Lenore Tawney and Eva Zeisel. It runs from October 30, 2015 through February 28, 2016.
