Stories in Form: Chair Design with the Portfolio Center
Tuesdays-Sundays. Continues through June 3 2012
Admission is $10 for adults, $8 for seniors and military, and $5 for students and children over 5. Members are free.
This spring, MODA, in partnership with the Portfolio Center, presents Stories in Form: Chair Design by the Portfolio Center, an exhibition honoring history and design through the medium of the chair.
The works featured in Stories in Form are created as part of the Portfolio Center’s nationally acclaimed course “Modernism: History, Criticism & Theory.” Through this course, students create chairs through a design process that combines historical inspiration with personal experience. Each chair on display at MODA will be accompanied by the story of its creation, as well as demonstrating the step-by-step design process that brings these chairs into being.
