Michigan Modern: Design that Shaped America

Michigan was an epicenter of modern design in postwar America. Architects Eero Saarinen and Minoru Yamasaki were instrumental in defining the look of the mid-century. Companies like Herman Miller and General Motors and designers Charles Eames, George Nelson and Harley Earl, shaped the American dream and brought good design to the masses.

The Michigan Modern story will be told June 13-16 through a symposium at the Cranbrook Educational Community and an exhibition at the Cranbrook Art Museum. Our own Alexandra Lange will be speaking on June 15th. Go to michiganmodern.org to register. Early bird registration is through May 22. Registration ends May 31.
