Modern Metal: Functional Design for Life

Metal_1

Until May 18th, The University Center for the Arts, 1400 Remington St

The CSU Art Museum has truly highlighted the cohesion of both utilitarian and aesthetic design. The museum explores the deeper connection between mass produced objects that are now revered for their timeless design and mechanical craftsmanship. The title of the exhibit alludes to the collision of both form and function which foreshadows how these elements have become one revolving entity. Overtime, these artifacts have become monumentalized as iconic household wares. The items in this exhibit were selected from the Kirkland Museum in Denver and include many well-known designers such as Gio Ponti (Architect of the original wing in the Denver Art Museum), Charles & Ray Eames, and Marianne Brandt. Modern Metal ends on May 18th, an opportunity not to be missed!
