Curator's Perspective: AMERICAN ART DECO: DESIGNING FOR THE PEOPLE, 1918–1939
Presented by Catherine Futter, interim director of curatorial affairs and senior curator, decorative arts, Brooklyn Museum

AMERICAN ART DECO: DESIGNING FOR THE PEOPLE, 1918–1939 investigates a dynamic period in American history and culture when the country and its citizens went through political, economic, racial, and artistic transformation and revolution. Join exhibition curator Catherine Futter to learn more about the era through decorative arts, fine arts, architecture, and design. During this one-hour illustrated lecture, Futter will explore key themes of the exhibition, such as industrial and technological progress in the period following World War I, as well as relative social progress for women and people of color; the rise of the middle class and consumer culture; and the migration of styles, ideas, and designers from Europe to the US.
