Join us for a special preview of the soon-to-be-released, 300-page exhibition catalogue produced as a companion to Sforzina: Designs for a Modern America, 1924–1941. While the exhibition—currently on view at the District Architecture Center—features many of Edgard Sforzina’s Art Deco era designs, it is only a fraction of total output from his brief but prolific career in the United States.
Jim Linz and Denise Allen will give an illustrated talk highlighting additional works from the nearly 700 of Sforzina’s designs for furniture, decorative and functional objects, buildings, and interiors. Attendees will be able to pre-order the book, which will be available a few weeks after this program.
The galleries will be open 12pm–4pm for exhibition viewing.
