Serious Play: Design in Midcentury America


Denver Art Museum
100 W. 14th Ave. Pkwy.
Denver, CO 80204

In the wake of World War II, American homeware and toy creators turned to whimsical, childlike designs in an effort to lift the country out of a dark period. The result was a collection of postwar relics with playful colors, patterns, and shapes. At this eye-popping exhibit, see those high-art furnishings, including famed Hungarian-American designer Eva Zeisel’s Marmite-shaped bowls and Irving Harper’s bright blue kaleidoscope-inspired clock, which will make you seriously consider spicing up your own home decor.
