DUE TO UNFORESEEN GALLERY REPAIRS, THE "ANCIENT/MODERN" OPENING AND LECTURE HAVE BEEN RESCHEDULED TO FRIDAY, JUNE 27.
The exhibition “Ancient/Modern: The Design of Everyday Things” reinforces the notion that many objects we use in our daily lives have ancient roots. American historical objects of daily life bear this out. From the preindustrial forms that were direct descendants of ancient equivalents to the mass-produced consumer goods we use and take for granted today, these daily life objects display a remarkable continuity in form and function. Drawing upon historical examples, Donna Braden will explore intriguing links along the chain from ancient to modern.
Opening reception follows the lecture.
Donna Braden, Curator of Public Life, The Henry Ford Museum
