Dr. John Stuart Gordon, the Benjamin Attmore Hewitt Associate Curator of American Decorative Arts, Yale University Art Gallery, will visit the Society to present “Lurelle Guild’s Historical Modernism: Americana and Industrial Design.” Lurelle Van Arsdale Guild (1898- 1985), (featured in our current exhibit “Golden Age of Art and Design“), is among the most famous American industrial designers of the 20th century. 

Guild designed thousands of items for the industrial giants of the period including Westinghouse, Remington, Revlon, Schick, Corning, and perhaps most notably, Electrolux, whose model 30 is considered a classic of modern American design. 

Admission is free for members, $15 for non-members.
