Furniture Design Exhibition at the Ann Arbor Art Center

Preview a2acgallery

Art Department Professor John DeHoog is co-curating a furniture design exhibition at the Ann Arbor Art Center. The Mid West Furniture Zoku features the work of like-minded artists, designers, and educators working in the context of furniture. The works in the show represent a broad range of techniques, styles, and personal sensibilities, while at the same time demonstrating universal respect for materials, and deep interest in forms and functions. On display are objects that are familiar on one level, yet poke holes in our conventional views of how furniture should look and what role furniture plays in our daily lives.
