All objects are a work of design, no matter how utilitarian or pedestrian their use. A simple lamp or chair might not seem like art, but it was carefully and specifically designed to look and function a certain way. Join the Carnegie Museum of Art for the lecture “Is There Art in a Broomstick?” by Juliet Kinchin, a curator at the Museum of Modern Art in New York, to learn more about “the changing relationship between design and everyday life in 20th-century America.” The event is sponsored by Fallingwater and local design company Monmade.
