Next Tuesday, Cooper Hewitt and the Art Deco Society of New York will host “an evening with design historian Marilyn F. Friedman” discussing her book Making America Modern: Interior Design in the 1930s. Her book uses archival images and detailed descriptions to examine modernist development in United States interior design. Friedman is a design historian who focuses on “the development and popularization of modern design across America during the 1920s and 1930s,” according the Cooper Hewitt’s website.
At the event, Friedman will lecture on her text, which highlights the works of 50 prominent designers and architects including Donald Deskey, Gilbert Rohde, and Eleanor LeMaire. After the lecture, Friedman will sign copies of her book, which are available in Copper Hewitt’s shop. Sounds like an ideal event for the city’s many interior design fans.
When: Tuesday, December 4, 6:00 pm
Where: Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum (2 East 91st Street, Upper East Side, Manhattan)
