Gallery Talk - Origin to Icon: Exploring Danish Design

Saturday, December 11 from 12:30-1:30 p.m.

Gallery 31

Join Catherine Armour, dean of graduate studies and director of graduate design programs, as she discusses Origin to Icon: Exploring Danish Design , an exhibition that investigates the relationship between inspiration and design solutions. Examples of iconic Danish designs are exhibited in juxtaposition to the elements that motivated their designers to create them.
