The last session in the fall season of the program Collecting Design, this week will be devoted to the American Studio Movement. One of the most fascinating aspects of modern American design and one that came to attract collectors in the past decade, the Studio Movement lasted from the 40s through the 80s. It celebrated the notion that design, art, and crafts were intersected and boundaries were abandoned. It was an American phenomenon that came to shape a major chapter in the history of American modern design. The platform of the work created by the participants of the movement was concentrated in museum exhibitions and particularly at the Museum of Contemporary Crafts.
