Style, Innovation and Vision: Six Perspectives on a Design Collection
Today @ Brooks Stevens Gallery
Nov. 16, 2011
Having amassed an extensive body of art since its first exhibition in 1993, the Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design's Brooks Stevens Gallery recently undertook a massive project to digitally catalog its collection. With the catalog completed and the collection reorganized, a team of six esteemed curators from Milwaukee and surrounding areas have assembled mini-collections for exhibition through March 1, 2012. Running the gamut from Kipp Stevens, industrial designer/retired president of his family's company Brooks Stevens, to Melissa Buchanan, the Mae E. Demmer Assistant Curator of 20th-Century Design at the Milwaukee Art Museum, they include among their ranks two industrial designers, an auctioneer, a design historian, an author and a MIAD professor.
