My Mu, 1950

“I can’t wait to see the exhibition Crafting Modernism: Midcentury American Art and Design, which opens this October at New York’s Museum of Arts and Design. To have the opportunity to view the work of such masters as Wendell Castle, Sheila Hicks, George Nakashima, and Isamu Noguchi [a 1950 Noguchi sculpture is shown above] at one venue will surely be an unforgettable experience. The independent spirit and the honesty to their craft that these artists and artisans displayed in the midst of a corporate environment were truly courageous and inspirational, and the impact of their work remains relevant to this day in the various disciplines within the design world.”
