Great news to all lovers of the American Studio Movement, which up until now did not have a permanent home. A new museum, the Modernism Museum Mount Dora is opening next month in Mount Dora, Florida, dedicated to work of key figures of the movement: Wharton Esherick, Sam Maloof, George Nakashima, Arthur Espenet Carpenter, Wendell Castle, and Albert Paley. The first exhibition focuses on work by Esherick and Castle with some rare, early, and newly-discovered pieces. The Museum, for example, has acquired the Castle’s largest work to date, which he created for a recent show at Friedman Benda Gallery in NY, the New Environment, an installation of stack-laminated pieces spanning two-stories. A new home to furniture which has never found a true home in any American museum will hopefully stimulate new scholarship, promote interest, and knowledge of this important movement of modern design.
