KATONAH, N.Y. -- Katonah Museum of Art is offering two lectures by design leaders in connection with its series, "Support for Design-Specific: Lectures by Leaders in Design."
A rundown of events is below.
Paola Antonelli, curator of architecture and design at MoMA will be the lead speaker for The New Frontiers of Design on Thursday, May 21 at 7 p.m. As a writer and curator, Antonelli’s work investigates design’s influence on our everyday experience, from objects as prosaic as the paperclip to the complex and constantly changing relationship of design and technology. Antonelli is the senior curator in the department of architecture and design, and the founding director of research and development at MoMA.
Ivan Chermayeff, a graphic designer, will present Thoughts on Design on Thursday, June 4, 7 p.m. Chermayeff created iconic images for hundreds of clients, including NBC, PBS, and the Smithsonian. Creator of the emblematic KMA logo, Chermayeff’s designs have received nearly every award bestowed by the profession, including the Smithsonian’s National Design Award for Lifetime Achievement and the Industrial Art Medal from the American Institute of Architects.
Tickets are $15 for members, $20 for non-members, $10 for students with ID.
Support for Design-Specific: Lectures by Leaders in Design is generously provided by Pat and Nick Ohnell.
